    Layered Double Hydroxide Coatings Loaded with Corrosion Inhibitors for Corrosion Protection of AZ31 †
    (MDPI, 2021) Pillado Rios, Borja; Mohedano Sánchez, Marta; Olmo Martínez, Rubén del; Mingo, Beatriz; Matykina, Endzhe; Arrabal Durán, Raúl
    Layered double hydroxide (LDHs) coatings were developed for the corrosion protection of AZ31 Mg alloy. AZ31 is widely used in the transport industry due to its low mass density and good mechanical properties. LDH coatings were fabricated under co-precipitation conditions and applied under hydrothermal conditions. Two different systems Zn-Al LDH and Li-Al LDH were studied. Specimens were post-treated via immersion for 2 h at 45 °C in inhibitor aqueous baths. Na2WO4·H2O and LiNO3 inorganic inhibitors were used, respectively, to produce inhibitor-loaded systems: Zn-Al LDH(W) and Li-Al LDH(Li). The characterization of the coatings was carried out by field-emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The corrosion process was studied by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and scanning vibrating electrode technique (SVET). The surface was also evaluated via the determination of water drop contact angle and the performance of a paint adhesion test using an epoxy primer. The characterization of the coating revealed two-layered coatings with a denser inner layer and a flaky outer layer. Both coatings improved the corrosion resistance of the AZ31 alloy. Loading with inhibitor further increased the corrosion resistance by one order of magnitude (bare substrate, Z10mHz~102 Ω cm2; LDH, Z10mHz~103–4 Ω cm2; LDH-inhibitor, Z10mHz~105 Ω cm2).

    Effects of pre-anodizing and phosphates on energy consumption and corrosion performance of PEO coatings on AA6082
    (Elsevier, 2021-01-22) Mohedano Sánchez, Marta; Mingo, Beatriz; Mora Sánchez, Hugo; Matykina, Endzhe; Arrabal Durán, Raúl
    A significant reduction in the energy consumption of Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) coatings on AA6082 alloy was obtained using strategies based on electrolyte selection and a precursor anodic film. PEO coatings were developed on AA6082 in silicate-based electrolytes with different phosphate species without and with a precursor oxide layer. The electrical response and, therefore, the specific energy consumption depended on the phosphate species and most notably on the applied pretreatment. The best result was obtained after anodic pretreatment and PEO in silicate-polyphosphate electrolyte with a reduction up to ⁓66% in comparison with the most conventional treatment (direct PEO in orthophosphate electrolyte). The corrosion response is not affected significantly by the pre-anodizing treatment either for short or prolonged immersion times revealing that coatings synthesised under high-energy efficient conditions have comparable corrosion performance under aggressive corrosive environments compared to conventional PEO processes.
