Summary

Industry developments not requiring metal etching to achieve adherence are noted. These developments are cited as the incentive to examine metal-cleaning methods used by other industries. The use of inhibitors, organic acids, and alkaline derusting solutions are described. Their potential to aid in enameling nonpremium steels is mentioned.
