Abstract:

Joints of AMts and AMg6 aluminum alloys, made by welding to carbon steel or stainless steel with or without additional alloying of the weld metal with 5 percent Si, 7 percent Zn or 1 percent Be, were tested for corrosion in natural sea water andor in sea atmosphere. Sea water corrosion tests were done with full continuous or periodic submerging the sea atmosphere tests were done by spraying test specimens with sea water in the air. Corrosion tests were conducted for one year with periodic examinations after 3, 6 and 12 months. The corrosive action of mechanical tests made before and after exposure, and also by visual inspection and measurements of the depth of corrosion damage. Author
