As per International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) “Corrosion is an irreversible interfacial of material (polymer, ceramic and metal) with its environment resulting in consumption of the material or in dissolution into the material of a component of the environment.” Corrosion protection is a major concern for various end-use industries across the globe and significant methods have been incorporated over the time to prevent and as well as treat corrosion. Protective coatings are highly preferred for preventing equipment against corrosion. The mechanism of corrosion protective coatings can be generally differentiated into creation of barrier between the environment and the substrate material, inhibition of the corrosion processes and coating acting as a sacrificial material. The corrosion protective coatings in general are available as waterborne, solvent borne and powder coatings.

Acid proof lining are coatings that protect concrete, plastic piping, fiber glass and steel structures against strong acids, solvents and alkalis. Acid proof lining also provides protection against mechanical abuse and elevated temperatures. They are employed in several of end-use industries wherein the floors, walls and equipment constantly exposed to strong chemicals and acids. Acid proof lining benefits the EPCMs working in these industries by saving on long-term maintenance costs.

South Africa corrosion protective coatings and acid proof linings market is anticipated to register healthy CAGR of 4.1% in terms of volume and 5.7% in terms of value over the forecast period (2016–2026).
