Paper Title:
Corrosion Behavior of 6000 Series Aluminum Alloys Produced by Conventional and Powder Extruded Process through Electrochemical Impedance Method
  Abstract

In this study, the electrochemical measurements such as the potentiodynamic polarization and the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) tests were carried out in order to clarify the corrosion behavior of the aluminum alloys fabricated by powder extruded (P/E) process compared with those by ingot metallurgy (I/M) process, using 6000 system aluminum alloys. Two kinds of aluminum specimens; one is fabricated by the conventional I/M specimen and the other is fabricated by the P/E process, were used for the electrochemical experiment in the sulfuric acid solution with 0.5 kmol/m3 concentration. Both of I/M and P/E specimens showed the linear relationship between the electrochemical potential (E) and the common logarithm of current density (icorr) in the cathodic region where Tafel law was recognized irrespective of stirring of the test solution though the icorr was slightly increased by stirring for both specimens. On the other hand, in the anodic region, both of the two specimens indicated the almost the same icorr irrespective of stirring. These experimental results interpret that the corrosion is controlled by the chemical reaction. The EIS test indicated that the maximum charge transfer resistance (Rct) was observed at -0.55 V which is 0.11 V higher potential than the corrosion potential (Ecorr) for both of the two specimens.
