Article Preview

Hydrotalcite-like compound that belongs to anionic clay family was prepared by classical co-precipitation method using magnesium and aluminium nitrates as precursors. Different weight percentages of hydrotalcite with Mg/Al ratio of 2.5 was added (1, 5 and 10 % wt.) to hybrid sols prepared by copolymerization of 3-Glycydoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) and tetra-n-propoxyzirconium (TPOZ). The aim of this work was to study the effect of the hydrotalcite incorporation to hybrid sol-gel coatings on aluminium alloys as substitution of chromate inhibitors. Hybrid sol-gel coatings were deposited by dip coating method on AA2024-T3 substrates. By Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and mechanic profilometry it was possible to see the distribution of HTCP agglomerates which varies from nanometres to micrometers. The corrosion performance was evaluated by the accelerated test salt fog spray chamber (SSFC) and by Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). The obtained results show the corrosion resistance improvement at higher weight percentages of HTCP.
