Study of Effect of Ce-Rich Mixed Rare Earth on Corrosivity of New 5XXX Series Aluminium Alloys
In this paper, AL-Mg-Mn-RE series alloys are becamed object of study.They are prouced with pure alumimum, pure Mg,electrolytic Mn and mix rich Ce rare earth. The effect of rare earth content on the resistance of the Al-Mg-Mn-RE series alloys are investigated by using Anodic polarization curves, electrochemical impendance spectroscopy. The results showed that their corrosivity is influenced by RE content in aluminum alloys.NO.3.3 impedance of Al-Mg-Mn-RE alloys is larger in the Nyquist diagram and its corrosion current of alloy decreases obviously. Then corrosivity of alloy is the best and the RE content is 0.3%,When the RE content is higher or lower than it that corrosivity isn’t improved but descended.
