Mechanism for Corrosion Prevention by a Mechanical Plating of Uniform Zinc-Iron Alloy

Naoya Kasai, Yoshihiko Kaku, Shinji Okazaki, Kuninori Hirai

Abstract

In situ electrochemical monitoring with a three-electrode cell was applied to investigate the anti-corrosion properties of a mechanical zinc-iron alloy plating. Several electron probe microanalyses were also conducted to identify the chemical elements in the plating. The results indicated the formation of a Zn-Fe intermetallic compound, which allowed a mechanism for corrosion prevention to be proposed. In the proposed mechanism, Zn(OH)2 plays a significant role in the corrosion prevention of steel alloys.
