EIS Study of Molybdate Conversion Coatings Formed on AZ91D Magnesium Alloy
An environmentally friendly molybdate conversion coating based surface treatment was developed for AZ91D magnesium alloy. The EIS technique was employed to study the effects of the conversion bath composition and temperature on the corrosion protection performance of molybdate conversion coatings on AZ91D magnesium alloys. The optimum conditions under which obtained conversion coatings showed the best corrosion resistance were determined. The Nyquist results showed that the value of charge transfer resistance increased by 22.5 times for the sample treated in the optimized molybdate conversion bath.
