This Short Communication refers to the relationship between edge coverage (as a geometrical protection parameter for edges) and the corrosion protection performance of organic coatings over edges. Results recently reported in Progr. Organ. Coat. (Vol. 101, pp. 186–194; Vol. 102, pp. 167–177) are reconsidered and interpreted by means of Pearson’s correlation coefficient. It is shown that no linear correlation exists between edge coverage and corrosion protection performance over cut edges.
