Paper Title:
Effect of Mg on the Microstructure and Electrochemical Corrosion Behavior of Arced Sprayed Zn-Al Coating
  Abstract

Cored wires and high velocity arc spraying technique (HVAS) were used to produce high Mg content Zn-Al-Mg alloy coatings on low carbon steel substrates. The microstructures, mechanical properties and electrochemical corrosion behaviors of the Zn-Al-Mg coatings were investigated comparing with Zn and Zn-Al alloy coatings. And the electrochemical corrosion mechanisms of the coatings were discussed. The coatings show a typical aspect of layered thermal sprayed material structure. Chemical analysis of the coating indicated the composition to be Zn-14.9Al-5.9Mg-3.0O (wt.%). The main phases in the coatings are Zn, Mg2Zn11, Al12Mg17 and MgAl2O4, together with a little Al2O3 and ZnO. The corrosion potential of Zn-Al and Zn-Al-Mg coatings decreased a little and then increased towards the noble potential. With addition of Mg, the corrosion products accumulated to form stable passive film can block off the pores in the Zn-Al-Mg coating, and thus may prevent attack on the underlying steel substrate. The Zn-Al-Mg coatings show higher electrochemical corrosion resistance in salt solution than Zn-Al coatings.
