Preliminary Investigation on the Corrosion Behavior of Amorphous (Ti90Ru10)87Si13 in Saline Solutions

Document Type



Amorphous alloys also known as metallic glasses appear to have unique corrosion resistant properties. The corrosion characteristics of a (Ti90Ru10)87Si13 alloy have been measured in 0.5 M NaCl and in artificial seawater (ASW) by linear polarization resistance, ac impedance and small amplitude cyclic voltammetry (SACV). Results show a low corrosion rate of the alloy in these media, with the rate of corrosion in seawater slightly faster than the rate of corrosion in sodium chloride.
