Electrodeposition Obtaining and Corrosion Behaviour of Phenol Formaldehyde Resin/Zinc Composite Coatings
MetadataShow full item record
The present work has the purpose of obtaining composite coatings in zinc matrix by using phenol - formaldehyde resin type NOVOLAC (RESITAL 6358/1) in the electrodeposition process of zinc. The PF resin/Zn composite coatings were electrodeposited from a suspension of PF resin particles (diameter < 56 μm) in aqueous zinc sulphate electrolyte. Suspension was prepared by adding 10g/L and 25g/L PF resin particles into solution. The pure zinc coating has a rather regular surface, whereas the composite coatings surface has fine surface structure. For layers obtained at 3A/dm2 the polarization resistance is higher for composite coatings with 10 g/L PF resin (Rp = 238.75 Ω cm2) than pure zinc (Rp = 34.54 Ω cm2). For layers obtained at 5A/dm2 the polarization resistance is higher for composite coatings with 25 g/L PF resin (Rp = 430.19 Ω cm2) than pure zinc (Rp = 127.34Ω cm2). As test solution 0.5M sodium chloride was used, it was observed that by adding PF resin particles in zinc electrolyte for electrodeposition it was obtained a very good distribution of resin particles on zinc surface and PF resin/Zn composite coatings obtained are most resistant at corrosive attack than pure zinc obtained from electrodeposition under the same conditions.
