Abstract

The presented work reports on the peculiarities of the anodic behavior, corrosion resistance and protective ability of electrodeposited Zn-Ni-P alloys with a different composition in a model corrosion medium of 5% NaCl. Three characteristic coating types have been investigated using experimental methods such as potentiodynamic polarization (PD) technique and polarization resistance (Rp) measurements. In addition, X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis as well as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with an Energy-dispersive X-ray (EDAX) device were applied to determine the differences in the chemical composition and surface morphology which appeared as a result of the corrosion treatment. The data obtained are compared to those of electrodeposited pure Zn coatings with identical experimental conditions demonstrating the enhanced protective characteristics of the ternary alloys during the test period in the model medium. The influence of the chemical and phase composition of the alloys on its corrosion resistance and protective ability is also commented and discussed.
