Effect of Water Rinsing Temperature for Steel Substrate on Corrosion Behavior of Hot-Dip Aluminizing Coatings
The relationship between the morphology and protective action of hot-dip aluminizing coatings on Q235 steel have been investigated by SEM, EDS and EIS in 3.5 wt% NaCl aqueous solution. The results indicated that the anti-corrosion performance of the hot-dip aluminizing coatings using steel substrate rinsed by the distilled water at 25 oC was higher than that at 80 oC. The evolution of localized corrosion from pitting to exfoliation corrosion has been found on the aluminum coating surface during immersion, and corresponding equivalent circuit models were proposed to fit the EIS data in the initiation and propagation stages of corrosion process.
