Paper Title:
Surface Protection of the Steel Sheet with Zn-Fe Alloys
  Abstract

The Zn-Fe layers are recommended in automotive industry and in the adders for the following qualities: a better weldability than the zinc-coated plates, very good capacities for painting and lacquer wear resistance, good adherence, lower zinc consumption by layer thickness below 100g/m2. Important transformation of phases takes place during heating of galvanized parts due to mass transfer iron in the zinc layer and Zn-Fe alloy is formed. Galvanized steel samples were heated 10-30 sec. at 500-650oC. Heat treated samples were metallographic ally examined and X- ray diffraction tested with a view to establish structural and chemical composition change due to heat treatment. As a result of microscopic examination (both optical and electronic) and X-ray diffraction testing in coating layer were detected phase ratio changes, according to heat treatment parameters. Considering that the physico-chemical and mechanical properties differ for the two phases and phase ratio is to decide the properties of the product; these structural changes are of great importance in practice. The desirable coating would be a Zn-Fe coating with 8-10% Fe (according to some authors, up to 12% Fe), with a structure consisting mainly of  phase and a small quantity of  phase. The mathematical correlation between diffusion phenomena occurring in layer, depending on temperature and time of heat treatment, and iron content of coating are presented.
