    Rufang ZHANG, Yimei TIAN, Bo ZHENG, Yarong SONG, Hanchao LU
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 469-475.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.053
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1767KB)

    Corrosion performance of cement mortar lining of reclaimed water pipe network in high quality reclaimed water was assessed in terms of water quality stability index, which was adopted to assess the corrosivity of the yielding water of reclaimed water plant, while four parameters of water, such as alkalinity, hardness, Cl- and SO42- were selected to design the four-factor three-level orthogonal test. Besides, the corrosion morphology of the lining was also characterized by means of SEM and other micro-morphology analysis methods. The results show that: (1) the reclaimed water with poor quality stability can be corrosive to the cement mortar lining; (2) the impact of the four parameters on the corrosion of cement mortar lining can be ranked as: hardness>Cl->alkalinity>SO42-; (3) the impact on the corrosion of cement mortar lining of hardness and Cl- are relatively significant, that of alkalinity is not obvious, while that of SO42- is little; (4) the corrosion is more serious when the high alkalinity (HCO3-) and low hardness exist simultaneously.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 476-484.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.248
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (5494KB)

    Ag-bearing antibacterial duplex stainless steels were prepared by adding Cu-Ag alloy particles into the master alloy of CD4MCu. The microstructure and Ag-rich phase of the steels after solution treatment at 1150 ℃ were characterized by SEM, XRD and EDS. The pitting corrosion resistance of the steels in different solutions was assessed by electrochemical means in comparison with CD4MCu duplex stainless steel. The results indicated that the Ag-rich phase of Ag-bearing steels can not be fully dissolved into the matrix so that the physical and chemical properties of the steel surface are not consistent; the pitting corrosion resistance of the Ag-bearing steels differs from the CD4MCu to some extent in different solutions. In comparison with the CD4MCu, The Ag-bearing steel exhibits lower pitting corrosion resistance, higher corrosion current density and weaker stability of the formed passive film in 3.5%NaCl solution and sterile liquid culture medium. In the contrast, which exhibits better resistance, lower corrosion current density and higher stability of the formed passive film in Cl- containing 30% acetic acid solution and Escherichia coli solution respectively.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (1330KB)

    Corrosion behavior of Q235 steel in solutions with different concentrations of S2-, Cl- and NH4+ was studied by means of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and potentiodynamic polarization technology etc. It is found that the anodic polarization process of Q235 steel was passivatedin the solution with NH4+ or S2-, and it was actively polarized in the solution with Cl-. The corrosion current density of Q235 steel increased with the increasing concentration of Cl- or NH4+, but it decreased with the increasing concentration of S2-. The protective passivation film formed on Q235 steel in the alkaline sulfide environment. The Cl- and S2- were adsorbed at the defect of the passive film and there with the formation of the passive film was blocked, which resulted in the steel being activated under the film and the corrosion process was accelerated.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 492-498.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.255
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2885KB)

    Micro-arc oxidation (MAO) coating was prepared on Al-alloy 6063 in a borate- and silicate-based alkaline solution. The microstructure and electrochemical corrosion behavior of the borate-based MAO coating were investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), potentiodynamic polarization tests and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results showed that the silicate-based MAO coating was of densification compared with that of borate-based MAO ones. There existed higher amount of phase Al9Si in the silicate-base MAO coating rather than in the borate-based MAO coating. The corrosion results indicated that the silicate-based MAO coating could provide superior protection for the Al-alloy 6063, while the borate-based MAO coating was of porous structure with inferior corrosion resistance. Furthermore, the EIS tests proved that the two coatings all showed appropriate corrosion resistance in 0.5 mol/L NaCl solution. However, the borate-based MAO coating could not provide sufficient protection for the Al-alloy 6063 after 72 h immersion in 1 M NaCl solution.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 499-506.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2017.120
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (6017KB)

    The corrosion behavior of Al-alloy 6082-T6 in a simulated marine atmospheric environment was investigated by salt spray tester. Results showed that the relationship between the corrosion mass loss and corrosion time followed the power exponential equation: D=0.44t 0.45. At the initial corrosion stage, pitting corrosion occurred by the action of Cl-, then corrosion product gathered and stacked gradually and as a result, the pitting corrosion turned to be general corrosion. With corrosion time going by, the corrosion product layer became thick and compact. When corrosion time was between 20~30 d, the outer corrosion product layer was thin and loose because the dissolution played the dominant role. With the increasing corrosion time, the outer corrosion products became compact stacks of flakes, while Icorr underwent increasing firstly, decreasing next, then increasing and finally decreasing again. In the meantime, capacitive reactance arc experienced shrunking firstly, expanding next, then shrunking and finally expanding again.

    Tianliang ZHAO, Liangjuan ZHANG, Jiyu QIAN, Zixuan PENG, Cuiwei DU, Xiaogang LI
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 507-514.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.281
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (4447KB)

    As a substitute of theconventional ethylene glycol coolant, low-conductive ethylene glycol coolant was developed to alleviate the corrosion of cooling plate and the blocking of circulation channels.However, scarce researches focus on it currently. In the present work, corrosion behavior of three Al-alloys, 3A21, 5A05 and 6063, in low-conductive ethylene glycol coolant was comparatively studied by methods of potentiodynamic polarization, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and immersion test. The results show that 5A05 has the best corrosion resistance in the low-conductive ethylene glycol coolant, which was suffered mainly from uniform corrosion along with mild local corrosion. While Al-alloys 3A21 and 6063 were suffered from pitting corrosion. The Al-alloy 6063 has the poorest pitting-corrosion resistance with the fastest thinning rate and pitting growth rate. The different corrosion behavior of the three Al-alloys in low-conductive ethylene glycol coolant can be attributed to higher Mg content and moderate Mn content of the Al-alloy 5A05.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 515-520.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.283
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2229KB)

    A magnesium phosphate cement coating (MPC) of ~500 μm in thickness was prepared on 45# carbon steel. The coated steels were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, linear polarization resistance and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, as well as salt fog test and potentiodynamic polarization. It was found that, the coating consisted of MgKPO46H2O, MgO, and Al2O3 with microcracks on its surface. The coated steels showed a stable polarization resistance and charge transfer resistance during immersion in 3.5%NaCl solution for 12 d. After salt fog test for 1440 h, no evidence of corrosion was observed on the coated steels. Meanwhile, the adhesive strength of MPC is (4.8±0.7) MPa. Polarization test indicated that, the bare steel produced a reduced anodic current and increased Ecorr when immersed in a filter liquor of the suspension of 3.5%NaCl with 10% MPC powders. These results demonstrate that, the MPC coating can provide a stable and satisfactory anti-corrosive effect for 45# steel.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2784KB)

    The Cr-free double-silane passivation film prepared on hot-dip galvanizing steel sheet was characterized by means of infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electrochemical test. While the corrosion resistance, anti-degrease-cleaning and paintability of the passivation film were verified by electrochemical test, neutral salt spray test, hot alkali spraying test and electrostatic powder spraying test. The results show that instead of simple physical adsorption there exist Si-O-Zn bonds between the passivation film and the galvanizing steel. The silane film (the main component of the passivation film) formed on the surface of the hot-dip galvanizing steel sheet presents three-dimensional net structure, the inorganic corrosion inhibitors containing F, Zr and V are filled in the gap within the silane film, thereby the passivation film is very dense. The Cr-free passivation film has strong adhesive strength with the galvanized steel, as well as high alkali-resistance, corrosion-resistance and appropriate paint-ability.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (2449KB)

    In order to protect bronze relics from further corrosion, it is essential to apply a super hydrophobic film on its surface. Super hydrophobic film on the surface of the simulated rust bronze (with mixed rust and powdery rust) was prepared by direct immersion method with n-dodecyl mercaptan(CH3(CH2)10CH2SH) and myristic acid (C14H28O2) mixed solution as hydrophobic agent. The prepared super hydrophobic surface films were characterized by scanning electron microscope, contact angle measuring instrument and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Then the corrosion resistance of the rust bronze with super hydrophobic surface films was assessed by electrochemical workstation. Experimental results show that a ca 0.1 μm compact super hydrophobic film was formed on the surface of the bronze with the above two type rusts, of which the contact angle can reach 157.32° and 151.76° respectively. For the bronze with mixed rust, its free-corrosion current density was reduced from 8.5 mAcm-2 to 2.94×10-1 mAcm-2 due to the applying super hydrophobic surface film, and correspondingly the corrosion inhibition efficiency reached 96.54%. Similarly, for the bronze with powdery rust, the free-corrosion current density was reduced from 5.91 mAcm-2 to 2.89×10-2 mAcm-2, and the corrosion inhibition efficiency reached 99.51%.

    Xia LI, Min DU
    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 561-566.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.263
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (645KB)

    Microorganism influenced corrosion (MIC) in marine environments was always a role. It has been found that cathodic polarization could inhibit the MIC, but the relevant mechanism was not clearly understood yet. Meanwhile, the formation and the existence of biofilm have great influence on the corrosion. Most of the studies implied that cathodic polarization could effectively inhibit the attachment of bacteria,but it didn't achieve a very good effect on the biofilm. The potential of polarization was also a big problem that cannot be ignored. Due to the complexity of environment and the diversity of microorganisms, there was a great difference in the choice of cathodic polarization potential.

    Corrosion Science and Protetion Technology. 2017, 29 (5): 581-585.   DOI: 10.11903/1002.6495.2016.246
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (4058KB)

    A novel electrochemical sensor is designed for on-line atmospheric corrosion monitoring of metal materials, and the atmospheric corrosion behavior of Q235B and T91 steels are studied by the sensor with electrochemical noise (EN) technique. The atmospheric corrosion process is characterized by using the standard deviation of electrochemical potential noise (EPN) and electrochemical current noise (ECN) together with noise resistance. Experimental results indicate that the designed sensor can be successfully used to monitor atmospheric corrosion of metal materials. For uniform corrosion, there is a direct correlation between the corrosion rate and noise resistance. For localized corrosion, the standard deviation of ECN can reflect corrosion resistance, however, there is no direct relationship between noise resistance and corrosion rate.
