Performance of Bismuth Oxide in the Cathaphoretic Epoxy Primers


Article Preview

The anti-corrosion properties of and catalytic effect of crosslinking on Bi2O3 were investigated in this study. The results of double rubs test with methyl ethyl ketone, cyclic corrosion test and FT-IR with ATR show that Bi2O3 performs anti-corrosion property and catalytic effect of crosslinking of resin.
