A study has been made of cadmium-tin and zinc-tin alloy electrodeposits in the continuing efforts of the Air Force to find superior corrosion resistant coatings. The alloy systems evaluated were electrodeposited from fluoborate solutions. Cadmium was used as a basis of comparison throughout The cadmium-tin alloy coating was found to be superior to cadmium coatings in the majority of tests performed. The cadmium-tin alloy coating was found to have excellent resistance to salt spray, jet fuels, high temperature synthetic oils, organic acid vapors, and to have very little embrittling effect on hardened steel.
