Abstract

The effect of coating thickness and composition on the kinetics of acetic acid-induced filiform corrosion (FFC) on Zinc-Aluminium-Magnesium (ZAM) coated steel is investigated. Scribe defects are created in organic coatings applied to ∼10 μm coatings of varying composition (1−6 wt.%. Al, 1−3 wt. % Mg...

Abstract: The effect of coating thickness and composition on the kinetics of acetic acid-induced filiform corrosion (FFC) on Zinc-Aluminium-Magnesium (ZAM) coated steel is investigated. Scribe defects are created in organic coatings applied to ∼10 μm coatings of varying composition (1−6 wt.%. Al, 1−3 wt. % Mg), and fixed composition (Zn-1.5 wt. % Al- 1.5 wt.% Mg) but varying thickness (5−27 μm). FCC decreases with increasing Al (at fixed wt. % Mg) and thickness. A linear trend exists between thickness and iron exposure time. Findings are consistent with FFC advancing via a penetrative coating mechanism whereby exposed iron couples to the coating.
