Electrochemical deposition and characterization of zinc-nickel alloys deposited by direct and pulse current
Bajat Jelena B., Maksimović Miodrag D., Radović Goran R.
Chemical composition and phase structure of Zn-Ni alloys obtained by electrochemical deposition under various conditions were investigated. The alloys were deposited on a rotating disc electrode and steel panel from chloride solutions by direct and pulse current. The influence of the pulse plating variables (on-time, off-time, relation of off- and on-time) on the composition, phase structure and corrosion properties were investigated. The phase composition affects the anticorrosive properties of Zn-Ni alloys during exposure to a corrosive agent (3% NaCl solution). It was shown that a Zn-Ni alloy electrodeposited by pulse current with a pulse time of 1 ms and an off- and on-time ratio of 1 exhibits the best corrosion properties.
Keywords: Zn-Ni alloy, electrodeposition, pulse current, ALSV, corrosion.
