Abstract:

The corrosion rates of various metal alloys in artificial seawater and artificial seawater-CLOROX solutions was determined potentiokinetically employing the cathodic overvoltage-intercept method. The results obtained in the artificial seawater system agreed quite well with those obtained from previous ocean immersion tests. With the exception of an aluminum alloy, the effect of the addition of CLOROX was the same for all materials with the corrosion potential becoming more positive and the alloy less resistant to corrosion.
