Article Preview

The corrosion behaviors of Al-Si-Cr-Cu bearing low carbon steel and a reference steel Q235 were tested in a cyclic dry/wet environment containing 0.01mol/L NaHSO3 in laboratory. Rust layers were observed by optical microscope (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and XRD. The electrochemical behaviors of the steels were studied on the polarization curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results indicate that after 120h corrosion test, the annual corrosion rates of the designed steels reduce 42 % than Q235 at least. The corrosion products are generally iron oxyhydroxides and oxides such as FeOOH, γ-FeOOH, α-FeOOH, γ-Fe2O3, Fe3O4. The α-FeOOH possesses good stabilization mainly exits and can improve the corrosion resistance. There are the enrichments of Cu, Cr, Si and Al in the rust layer close to the matrix, which make the rust layer be more compact and protected. The corrosion currents of the two designed steels are lower than that of Q235, the corrosion potentials are higher than that of Q235 after Tafel fitting. The rust layer impedances of the designed steels are higher than that of Q235.
