Corrosion Behaviour of a Fe-Based Alloy in Zn and Zn-55Al Baths
Corrosion behavior in Zn and Zn-55Al baths were investigated on a Fe-based alloy, which was design to apply to hot-dip production lines as the anti-corrosion alloy. The results reveal that the Fe-based alloy shows excellent corrosion resistance both in pure zinc bath and Zn-55Al bath. And the reaction rate and intermetallic phase formation vary in different bath. In pure zinc bath, the intermetallic phases form on the Fe-base alloy is chiefly Fe-Zn phases contains Γ, δ and ζ phases. In Zn-55Al bath, the Fe-based alloy is comprised of Fe2Al5 and FeAl3 phases, and the outer layer is from bath itself. The more thickness the layer of Fe2Al5 phase, the more corrosion resistance of the alloy.
