Analytical Characterization and Corrosion Behavior of Non-Functional Bis-Silane Pre-Treated Carbon Steel Substrates
The present work aims at studying the corrosion resistance of carbon steel substrates pre-treated with bis-[triethoxysilylpropyl] tetrasulfide (BTESPT) solutions. The corrosion behavior of the pre-treated substrates during immersion in seawater was assessed by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and potentiodynamic polarization. The analytical characterization of the silane films was performed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show that the pre-treatments based on silanes provide good corrosion protection of carbon steel substrates and the bis-silane film has good adhesion properties.
