Enhancement of anticorrosion property of 304 stainless steel using silane coatings
In the present work, silane coatings based on glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane/methyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS/MTMS) and silica nanoparticles were prepared by a sol-gel method. A simple dip-coating method was applied for film deposition and the effect of immersion time and number of immersion cycles on corrosion behavior of 304 stainless steel (SS) was investigated. Scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM/EDS) was used to study the surface morphology and elemental composition of the modified surfaces. The corrosion behavior of the coated and uncoated SS substrates was studied by potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy in 0.6 M sodium chloride solution. Our results showed that the presence of coatings improved the anti-corrosion property of SS substrates. The coating with a dipping time of 10 min and 3 dipping cycles exhibited the best protection efficiency compared to other coatings and the uncoated substrate. SEM/EDS findings and contact angle measurements supported the conclusions drawn from the corrosion study. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
