Pyrrole-Based Silane Primer for Corrosion Protection of Commercial AA 2024 T3
An alternative approach was developed for surface treatment of as-received commercial AA 2024 T3 by using a pyrrole-based silane (SiPy). For film deposition, just one immersion step is enough, followed by curing. SiPy layer structure contains both polysiloxane bonds and pyrrole oligomers, with some degree of doping, giving a highly coherent layer. The superior film quality with respect to simple polysiloxane, is probably the main reason for the better corrosion performance obtained for SiPy on 2024.
