Paper Title:
Structure and Electrochemical Characterization of Ni+W+Si Composite Coatings in an Alkaline Solution
  Abstract

Ni+W+Si composite coatings were prepared by nickel deposition from a bath containing suspension of tungsten and silicon powders. These coatings were obtained under galvanostatic conditions, at the current density of jdep. = 0.100 A cm-2 and at the temperature of 338 K. A scanning electron microscope was used for surface morphology characterization of the coatings. Chemical composition of the coatings was determined by EDS method and phase composition investigations were conducted by X-ray diffraction. Thermal treatment of obtained coatings was conducted in the air and nitrogen atmosphere. Electrochemical corrosion resistance investigations were carried out in the 5 M KOH, using potentiodynamic method. It was found that Ni+W+Si coatings after thermal treatment in the air are more corrosion resistant in alkaline solution than Ni+W+Si coatings after thermal treatment in the nitrogen atmosphere and as-deposited coatings. The main reason of this is presence of new phases, in particular NiWO4 and SiO2.
