Corrosion Behavior of Sm-Based Bulk Metallic Glasses in Salt Solution


Article Preview

In this paper, the corrosion behaviors of Sm-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) were investigated by immersion test. It was found that with Co content increasing the ability of corrosion resistance of the alloy increases for Sm-based bulk metallic glasses. A comparison study was made on the corrosion behaviors between the glassy state alloys and crystalline alloys with the same ingredients. The results show that the glassy state alloy has the better corrosion resistance.
