Paper Title:
Effect of Li on the Corrosion Behavior of Al-Cu/SiCp Composites
  Abstract

The corrosion behavior in NaCl solutions at different pH values of Al-Cu-Li/SiCp and Al-Cu/SiCp composites fabricated by co-spraying technique was studied. The corrosion behavior of the composites was also compared with the corrosion behavior of pure aluminum. Corrosion potential measurements and potentiodynamic polarization were used to elucidate the corrosion behavior of the composites. In addition the microstructure and morphology of the composites were studied through X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). It was found that the corrosion rate of Al-Cu-Li/SiCp and Al-Cu/SiCp composites was higher than corrosion rate of pure aluminum for all NaCl solutions tested. Both composites and pure aluminum showed the typical “U” behavior of the corrosion rate as a function of pH. The addition of lithium had little effect on the corrosion behavior of the composites.
