Research on Corrosion-Resistance of High Velocity Arc Spray Coatings on Surface of Steel Structure in Splash Zone Environment
The most severe corrosion of offshore steel structure occurs in splash zone. There are many factors affecting the steel structure corrosion in the splash zone, such as corrosion problems caused by seawater and effect of impacted brought by the ocean wave. Considering the corrosion characteristics in splash zone and the corrosion invalidity behaviors of offshore steel structure, the Zn-15Al, Al-RE, Zn-Al-Mg-RE and FeBSiNb uncrystal coatings were prepared by automatic high velocity arc spraying. The different anti-corrosion behaviors of the four coatings were studied through the corrosion comparative tests and the microstructures analyzed of the coatings before and after the corrosion tests. The anti-corrosion coating systems suitable for using on surface of steel structure corrosion in the splash zone were found, which provided technique guarantee for extending the using life of offshore steel structures.
