Conducting polymer coatings on steel: Adhesion and corrosion protection

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Plain carbon steel sheet has been coated with polyaniline emeraldine base (EB) and with polyaniline emeraldine salt (ES) that has been doped with different counterions. The corrosion protection produced by these coatings have been assessed using electrochemical and exposure tests. The adhesion of these coatings to the steel has also been measured. The results show that both forms of polyaniline (ES and EB) provide a degree of corrosion protection and that the counterion incorporated into the ES also influences the corrosion rate and the adhesion.
