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.
