Protection against salt water of the AA5083 alloy by treatments based on lanthanides salts
Keywords:Environmental friendly surface pretreatments, Aluminium alloys, Lanthanide elements
AA5083 sheet samples have been pre-treated by full immersion in aqueous solutions of different lanthanide trichlorides salts, namely CeCl3, LaCl3 and SmCl3 The inhibition against uniform and pitting corrosión, in 3.5 % NaCl solutions, provided by such surface treatments has been estimated using electrochemical techniques. Protection against pitting has been quantified in terms of the percentage of increase observed for the pitting nucleation resistance. Among all the pretreatments tested, optimum performances have been observed for those carried out in 500 ppm CeCl3 aqueous solutions for fifteen days. However, acceptable protection degrees are observed even after 48 h in this solution.
