Corrosion Inhibition of Polyethylene Glycol for Magnesium Alloy AZ91 at Different Temperatures


Article Preview

the corrosion inhibition of polyethylene glycol 200 for magnesium alloy AZ91 in 1% NaCl solution at different temperatures are studied. The morphology of the sample at 25°C is analyzed by SEM. And CHI600C electrochemistry workstation is employed to investigate the corrosion inhibition of the samples. The results show that the corrosion inhibition efficiency of polyethylene glycol 200 to the magnesium alloy AZ91 is affected by temperature. Polyethylene glycol 200 has superior corrosion inhibition to the magnesium alloy at the temperature of 25°C.
