This book chapter discussed the various anticorrosive coatings, namely barrier, inhibitive, sacrificial, inorganic coatings, organic coatings, surface treatment, and importance of inhibitors to reduce the corrosion rate in metal and alloys. The various modified coatings were introduced to reduce pores, and defects observed in conventional coatings. The water permeability through the barrier coatings was also reduced using pigmentation of organic coatings.
