Coating: to Prevent Iron Rust.
It has probably occurred to everyone
who is forced to rely on protective
coatings of one sort or another to
keep iron and steel from rust and de
cay that this method of combating the
corrosion problem is of the same or
der as locking the barn door after the
horse is stolen. In other words, since
rusting- Is a consequence of the ten
dency of iron to go into solution when
in contact with water, why not add
something to it or treat it in some way
so as to eliminate or decrease this
tendency? As an enormous amount of la
bor and material, to say nothing of
time, is used up every year in coating
and protecting iron from adverse con
ditions and with the rapid increase in
the demand for this metal a corre
spondingly greater amount of labor,
material and time is required. ob
viously, any procedure which would
lessen the need for Buch thorough pro
tection would be a very real saving.
One of the most firmly established
tenets in the creed of the successful
business man is that of insisting upon
the utter extermination of unproduc
tive labor. No one will dispute the
soundness of the reasoning provided
the labor so designated assists in no
way the process of manufacture. Too
often, however, since the man whosu
