Pulp and Paper Industry Publications

Corrosion Probe staff have written three books that are utilized widely in the industry:



Corrosion Probe's engineers and consultants have also played a significant role in the development and maintenance of nearly all Technical Information Papers (TIPs) generated by TAPPI's Corrosion and Materials Engineering Committee, including:
Maintenance Painting of Steel Structures in Pulp and Paper Mills - A   Program Approach for Maximum Cost Effectiveness [D. Bennett, R. Nixon]
Concrete Handbook:  Practical Guide for Protecting and Improving the Durability of Concrete in Pulp and Paper Mills [D. Bennett, R. Nixon]
The Fundamentals of Cleaning and Coating Concrete [R. Nixon]

Additionally, we have developed two important guidelines available directly from Corrosion Probe:
