Abstract:

Aluminum, steel and magnesium trimetal assemblies were simultaneously coated in order to decrease galvanic corrosion and to develop coatings to be used for recoating structurally united components containing dissimilar metals. The following experimental solutions were utilized to coat trimetal assemblies stannate-chromate, phosphate, stannate-gluconate, stannate-hypo phosphate, and stannous pyrophosphate. The stannous pyrophosphate solution produced the best coatings on the assemblies.
