    Long-term polarisation and immersion for copper corrosion were investigated in chloride-containing sulphide solutions. Results showed that no active state exists for copper in sulphide-containing solutions, whereas a typical active-to-passive transition exists in the second passivation region, indicating a hydroxyl activation effect on copper.

  2. Scanning Kelvin probe blister studies of the delamination of epoxy films on organosilane modified ZnMgAl alloy coated steel

    The focus of this paper lies in the still incompletely investigated bonding mechanisms within the boundary layer of complex metal-polymer layer systems. The scientific motivation is thus the experimental validation of these mechanisms and the postulated theories by the in situ-measurement of the change in the corrosion potential during controlled stress scenarios of such systems.

  3. Effect of grain size on the low cycle fatigue behavior of 316LN stainless steel in high temperature water

    The effects of grain size on the fatigue life and crack initiation mechanism of 316LN stainless steel in 320 °C water environment were investigated by corrosion fatigue cracking test system, SEM, EBSD, and TEM. The results indicated that the specimens with fine grains revealed the longest fatigue lives compared to those with intermediate and coarse grains. Related fatigue crack initiation mechanisms were discussed.

  4. Corrosion behaviour of bismuth-containing gold thick-film electrodes

    N. Junker, M. Schneider and A. Michaelis

    A Bi(III)-containing gold-thick-film, screen-printed and co-fired on LTCC, was used as electrode material. Due to cathodic polarisation of this screen-printed electrode metallic bismuth was reductively formed in the interphase between the thick-film and the LTCC substrate. In a subsequent anodic treatment the previously formed bismuth was anodically dissolved, leaving behind a degraded interphase.

  5. Electrochemical characterization of the superelastic (Ti-Zr)-Mo-Sn biomedical alloy displaying a large recovery strain

    M. F. Ijaz, C. Vasilescu, S. I. Drob, P. Osiceanu, M. Marcu, H. Y. Kim, S. Miyazaki, D. M. Gordin and T. Gloriant

    Version of Record online: 24 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/maco.201709484

    The new (Ti-Zr)-1.5Mo-3Sn biomedical alloy showing large superelastic recovery strain of 7% and Young's modulus of 60 GPa was characterized and compared with CP Ti and Ti-6Al-4V alloys currently used in medicine.
