Project: Study of passivation layers on non ferro alloys, whether or not covered with polymer layers, with regard to optimization of the system and explanation and prediction of the corrosion behaviour
- project duration
- 01-OCT-94 – 31-DEC-99
- The formation and characteristics of passivation layers on pure metals and on alloys are studied in order of increasing complexity, with regard to the behaviour in a corrosive environment. Important research techniques are electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), AES, EPMA, XRD. Finally, systems which contain a polymer top layer will be examined.
