Study of Corrosion Resistance of Sintered Fe-2%Ni, Fe-5%Ni and Fe 10%Ni with Electroactive Polymeric Coating of Poly trans-[RuCl2(vpy)4]
The use of generated coated polymeric films by electrochemistry means in the sintered metallic surfaces has been being the focus of our research aimed at the corrosion protection of small mechanical components obtained from powder metallurgy. The sintered alloys Fe- 2%Ni, Fe-5%Ni and 10%Ni with polymeric coating were tested using electrochemistry methods in corrosive solutions of NaCl 3%, KNO3 1.25M, H2SO4 0.5M, HNO3 0.5M, acetic acid 1%, oxalic acid 1% and lactic acid 1%. The electrochemistry corrosion tests were performed using two techniques, Eocp vs. Time and Potentiodynamic and they proved the efficiency of the polymeric coating on the corrosion protection of sintered alloys.
