Study of Wave-Absorbing Coating Failure by Electrochemical Measurements

The absorption properties of wave-absorbing coatings can easily fail; therefore, a layer of corrosion-resistant topcoat is often added to the surface to increase the service life of the absorbing coating. In this study, we compare the changes in samples without or with a topcoat, namely fluorinated polyurethane, at 25 °C with a NaCl solution and at 35 °C with a neutral salt spray. Morphological characterization and composition analysis show that the topcoat can indeed greatly improve the corrosion resistance of the samples, but the absorption of the coatings still decreases in a short time. The reasons for this are indicated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. For the samples without a topcoat, the corrosion of the wave-absorbing coatings results in the failure of wave absorption. For the samples with a topcoat, it is likely that the state of the interface between the topcoat and absorbing coatings leads to the decline of the resistance of the wave-absorbing coatings, causing them to fail quickly.
