2. Process of attraction or attachment to a surface. The retention of foreign molecules on the surface of a substance.
5. The negative terminal of an electrolytic cell which, in the corrosion process, is protected and not attacked.
9. The ability of a coating to resist degradation due to mechanical wear
1. The cleaning and roughing of a surface by the use of sand, artificial grit, or fine metal shot which is projected at a surface by compressed air or mechanical means.
2. The positive terminal of an electric source. In a corrosion cell, the anode is the electrode that has the greater tendency to go into solution or the point at which corrosion occurs.
3. A compound used to extend or bulk a coating to provide extra body or hiding power
4. The treatment of a surface with an acid in order to dissolve loose particles or provide a profile.
6. The degree of attachment between a coating film and the underlying material to which it is in contact.
7. The wet or dry film thickness of a coating.
8. The temperature of a surface, at a given ambient temperature and relative humidity, at which condensation of moisture will occur
