The iron rust phase has been analyzed by using EPMA, TEM and alternating current (AC) impedance methods after wet/dry corrosion tests using 0.5 mass% NaCI solution. The steel containing 0.8 mass%Al showed higher corrosion resistance than carbon steel in the test Aluminum was identified in the spinel oxide of inner rust of Al-bearing steel by TEM and EPMA, which is confirmed by thermodynamic calculation (Pourbaix analysis). By AC impedance it is demonstrated that the resistance of the rust (R… CONTINUE READING
