Formation & Properties of Zn–Ca– Mn Tri – Cation’s Phosphate Coating on St37 Steels, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Afshar, Abdollah ; Ghorbani, Mohammad
Addition of heavy metal cations such as manganese and nickel in low zinc phosphating bath increases the corrosion resistance of coatings and provides more suitable substrates for painting (especially electrophoretic painting). In addition, due to accelerating property and low cost availability of heavy metal cations such as Mn, multi– cationic phosphating is cost effective. In the present study, chemical composition and operating parameters of zinc - calcium - manganese Tri- cationic phosphating solution were optimized. Then the effects of various parameters such as phosphating time, bath temperature and pH on properties of coating were investigated. According to the results, about 1 g/L was...

The present paper addresses an analytical method to determine the overall behavior of piezocomposite materials containing body centered cubic (BCC) distribution of arbitrary oriented ellipsoidal heterogeneities. This approach is based on the extension of the electromechanical equivalent inclusion method (EMEIM) to interacting multi-inhomogeneities. In this treatment the short and long range interactions of the piezoelectric particles are appropriately incorporated through the homogenizing eigenstrainelectric field. The periodicity of the microstructure of the medium suggests representing the eigenfields in terms of Fourier series, accounting for the matrixparticle, interparticle and...

In order to produce a thick near equi-atomic NiTi intermetallic layer on the surface of titanium plate, layers of nickel with thicknesses of 30 μm and 60 μm were electroplated on commercial pure (Cp) titanium and subsequently were heat treated at 850°C and 900°C. The effects of heat treating temperature and the thickness of electroplated nickel on the evolution of the microstructure and mechanical properties were studied. The results confirm the formation of various intermetallic layers in the coatings that substantially affect their hardness. The optimum condition for the formation of a thick NiTi intermetallic layer on the outer surface of the titanium was diffusion treatment of the sample...

In this article, a novel energy-based lifetime prediction model has been presented for uncoated and coated aluminum alloys, subjected to thermal and mechanical fatigue loadings. For this objective, isothermal and thermo-mechanical fatigue tests were performed on the A356.0 alloy, with and without thermal barrier coating systems. This model, which was based on the plastic strain energy, had three correction factors including temperature, strain and mean stress effects. The predicted lifetime showed a proper agreement with experimental data. By the present model, higher accuracy was obtained in comparison to other existed approaches. Besides, the present model had lower number of material...

Nanostructured hollow polyaniline (PANI) capsules are good candidates for encapsulation of corrosion inhibitors and pH-responsive release when incorporated into organic coatings. In previous studies, the corrosion protection performance of PANI capsules, containing organic inhibitor 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT), was demonstrated. The present work studies the influence of capsule concentrations (i.e., 0.3, 1, and 2 wt%) on the corrosion protection properties of the coating system. Anti-corrosion properties of different coatings were compared by means of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and Scanning Vibrating Electrode Technique (SVET).

Pure Zn and Zn matrix composite coatings containing nano-sized SiC particles with an average size of 50 nm were prepared from the zinc sulfate bath. The effects of the pulse frequency, maximum current density and duty cycle on the amount of particles embedded were examined. Electron microscopic studies revealed that the coating morphology was modified by the presence of SiC nanoparticles. In the presence of SiC nanoparticles deposit grows in outgrowth mode resulting in a very rough and porous microstructure. However, at very low and very high duty cycles a smooth and pore free microstructure was obtained. Corrosion resistance properties of the coatings were studied using potentiodynamic...
