Paper Title:
Effects of Titanium Combined with Aluminium on the Electrochemical Properties and Efficiency of Mg-Mn Anodes
  Abstract

Magnesium sacrificial anodes are widely used in cathodic protection systems. In the present work, samples of Mg-0.7% Mn- x% Al- y% Ti (x,y = 0-0.6) alloys were electrochemically characterized to evaluate their performance as magnesium sacrificial anodes. The experiments focused on the influence of aluminium and titanium contents on the electrochemical behavior and efficiency of anodes. Aluminium and titanium was used in different concentrations ranging from 0.15 to 0.60 at.%. Short-term electrochemical tests, ASTM G97-89, as well as polarization curves were performed to obtain electrochemical behavior and efficiency and to reveal any tendencies to be passive. It is shown that by increasing titanium content an improvement of electrochemical properties of magnesium anode such as current capacity and electrochemical efficiency can be obtained.
