Corrosion Behavior of Different Thermal Spray Coatings and Hard Chromium Electroplating on A286 Super Alloy
Electrodeposited hard chromium (EHC) coatings have been widely used for improving wear characteristics of engineering tools and components. In the electrodeposition processes, in general solutions containing hexavalent chromium have been used. Hexavalent chromium is classified as a carcinogen compound, which causes health risks if used in production, and environmental problems due to the toxic character of the wastes . In the present study plasma sprayed coatings (aluminum oxide, Co-28Mo-8Cr-2Si, tungsten carbide, chrome carbide) and electrolytic hard chrome coatings corrosion resistances have been compared through electrochemical polarization tests and immersion test in 0.1 N HCl aqueous solution.
