Abstract:

This report summarizes progress in understanding the nature of localized corrosion of amorphous Fe-Ni-Cr-P-B alloys, and in developing a technique to sputter deposit these alloys. Although Cr improves their resistance to crevice and crevice attack, it is not necessary 0 at. percent Cr melt spun alloys exhibited resistance to localized corrosion which was greatly superior to that of T304 stainless steel. Although the alloys can be made to crevice corrode, their resistance to this form of attack appears to exceed that of many crystalline stainless steels. A deposit was produced by sputtering and shown to possess corrosion resistance nearly as great as the melt spun alloys. Author
