Description

Corrosion and wear limit the service life of mild steel components in contact with flowing water. Original finishes for reducing corrosion and wear are prone to damage over time, especially in dynamic contacts over the long term. Stainless steel is often used to manufacture corrosion and wear resistant components for water industries but are significantly more expensive to manufacture. The purpose of our research is to develop a low-cost, in-situ surface alloy coating for cast mild steel to improve the performance and prolong the life of components used in water industries. This coating will have corrosion resistance comparable to stainless steel at a fraction of the cost.
