Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays, the deterioration of metals, alloys and materials is a vital issue that can be mitigated by the use of innovative coating processes for long-term exposure in aggressive environments. The selection of the proper materials for use in the chemical industries, oil and gas, construction, bridges, dams, aerospace, automobile, etc. is also an area of study The selection of materials depends on the application. Therefore, innovative process are needed for implementation in recent technologies, which requires new insights in the materials development sector. This Special Issue will provide in depth knowledge of the state-of-the art and original research studies on “Innovative coating processes to protect metals and alloys from deterioration” and summarizes the work that has been carried out to date. This Special Issue will also provide new ideas on current perspectives and discussions of advanced coating technology and corrosion mechanisms, with theoretical and experimental research studies by world-renowned scientists, professors, experts, researchers, students, and readers.

The main focus of this Special Issue on “Innovative coating processes to protect metals and alloys from deterioration” is to provide and publish recent developments in the area of materials technology to protect metals and alloys from corrosion in harsh environments. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Materials technology;
  • Thermal spray techniques;
  • Galvanization;
  • Sol-gel coating;
  • Electroless and electroplating;
  • Chemical industries;
  • Oil and gas sector;
  • Processes to develop innovative coating processes;
  • Development of smart materials that can protect the metals and alloys;
  • Nanotechnology development in the coating sector;
  • Protective methods to mitigate the corrosion of materials.

Aluminum coating was deposited by arc thermal spraying process onto the steel substrate for the corrosion protection in aggressive environment. However, the arc thermal sprayed coating possesses defects in the coating. Thus, it is important to reduce the defects and enhance the corrosion resistance properties of the deposited coating using post-treatment. In the present study, we have used different concentrations of sodium phosphate mono basic (NaH2PO4) with 0.1 molar (M) calcium nitrate [Ca(NO3)2] as post-treatment solution to fill out the defects of the Al coating. It was observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) that 1 M NaH2PO4 with 0.1 M Ca(NO3)2 treated sample exhibited 71% reduction in defects compared to as coated samples. X-ray diffraction (XRD) was performed to determine the phases formed on the coating surface after treatments. XRD confirms the formation of sodium aluminum hydrogen phosphate (Na3Al(OH)(HPO4)(PO4)) and brushite (Ca(HPO4)(H2O)2) as composite oxides on the Al coating. Electrochemical results show that 0.5 M NaH2PO4 with 0.1 M Ca(NO3)2 treated sample has exhibited the highest charge transfer resistance and the lowest corrosion current density after 89 days of exposure in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution. The enhancement in corrosion resistance of 0.5 M NaH2PO4 with 0.1 M Ca(NO3)2 treated sample attributed to the formation of adherent, sparingly soluble, and stable corrosion products. The volume fraction result of the corrosion products formed on 0.5 M NaH2PO4 with 0.1 M Ca(NO3)2 treated sample after 89 days of exposure in 3.5 wt.% NaCl using XRD confirms the highest amount of Bayerite (α-Al(OH)3) deposition, thus, the corrosion rate of this sample was the lowest.
