The effect of ultrasonic irradiation on the microstructure and corrosion rate of a Zn–4.8wt.% Al galvanising alloy used in high performance construction coatings / James Sullivan, David Penney, Jonathan Elvins, Khalil Khan

Abstract

The microstructure and corrosion resistance of a Zn–4.8 wt.% Al alloy, typically used for high performance galvanised coatings for construction, was modified by the application of ultrasound during solidification. The alloy exposed to ultrasound had an increased volume fraction of smaller, discrete...
