From the zinc-polymeric coatings on steel exposed to the rural-agrarian environment, alongside the fungi mentioned in Figure 2, mitosporic fungi of 20 species were isolated which were not detected under other environmental conditions.
The biggest variety of the species of mitosporic fungi was detected on the steel specimens covered with the zinc-polymeric coating exposed to the industrial environment.
The effect of mitosporic fungi and other factors on the zinc-polymeric coatings under different exposure conditions could be inferred by the changes in coating mass occurring during certain exposure time (Table 3).
During the year with moister conditions the corrosion rate does increase, corrosion products are easier cleaned away by atmospheric precipitation, whereas the decrease in coating mass and the decrease in total loss could be compensated by the activity of the mitosporic fungi present in the coating.
