Effect of nanostructuring and Al alloying on corrosion behaviour of thermal sprayed WC–Co coatings

Abstract : Nanostructured WC–12Co coating with crystal sizes below 30 nm were deposited on low carbon steel substrate by high velocity oxy-fuel spraying. In this study, corrosion behavior of such coatings was investigated in artificial sea water electrolyte and compared with micron-sized (internal structure) coating of similar composition. Besides that, role of small amount Al alloying on corrosion behavior of such nanostructured coating was also investigated. Nanostructured WC–12Co coatings with or without Al exhibit lower corrosion potential and lower polarization resistance compared to micron-sized (internal structure) coating as well as higher Co dissolution as revealed by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) together with other complementary electrochemical techniques.
