Abstract: Chromium-based coatings on steel, cathodically electroplated from Cr(VI) and Cr(III) electrolytes, were studied to compare their corrosion resistance following application of uniaxial strain. An organic overcoat (PVB) was applied to strained samples and an in-situ scanning Kelvin probe technique was used to determine rates of PVB cathodic disbondment. The Cr(VI) derived coatings were fully resistant to cathodic disbondment post-deformation. The Cr(III) derived coatings exhibited increased rates of cathodic disbondment with increasing uniaxial strain. The Kinetics of cathodic disbondment are explained on the basis of coating morphology produced by deformation, and the exposure of underlying iron. The electrochemical availability of iron is estimated by measuring hydrogen evolution kinetics on cathodically polarised samples.
