A comparative study of the morphology and anticorrosive behaviour of commercial 55 wt% Al-Zn-Si coatings (CC) and hot-dip 55 wt% Al-Zn-Si coatings (HD) on Q235 steel was performed by using surface analysis techniques and electrochemical measurements. Despite the ingredients of the Al-rich dendritic phase for HD coating similar to the ingredients for CC coating, aluminum content in the Zn-rich phase for HD coating was almost twice higher than aluminum content for CC coating. The difference of surface morphologies and chemical compositions in Zn-rich phases for the two 55 wt% Al-Zn-Si coatings could significantly affect their corrosion properties. The corrosion behavior of the two coatings was investigated in 0.01 mol L-1 NaCl + 0.01 mol L-1 NaHSO3 aqueous solution. Both polarization curve and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy results indicate HD coatings had much higher corrosion resistance than CC ones.
