This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:The goal of this project is to investigate the corrosion stability of phases in Zn, Al and Sn alloys. The studied materials can be used, for example, as light materials for automotive and aviation industries, steel protection coatings or lead-free solders for microelectronics. The alloys shall be prepared by a controlled melting of pure elements. The corrosion resistance will be studied in aqueous electrolytes. Moreover, the alloys stability shall be investigated in simulated off-shore conditions by a salt spray test. Selected samples will undergo a high temperature oxidation testing in corrosive atmospheres. Furthermore, mechanical properties will be investigated and a stress corrosion cracking behaviour shall be characterized. The oxidation products will be studied by a combination of methods, including X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and infrared spectroscopy. The aim of the project is to identify corrosion resistant alloys for practical applications.
