Effects of Ti addition on corrosion behavior of Zr-based metallic glass in chloride medium
The effects of Ti element on the corrosion resistance of the metallic glass Zr51.3Al10Ni6Cu31.8Ag0.1Y0.8 in aqueous solution with various chloride concentrations were investigated, and the effect mechanism was discussed. X-ray diffraction confirmed that Ti-added Zr51.3Al10Ni6Cu31.8Ag0.1Y0.8 metallic glasses with diameter of 3 mm were all metallic glasses. Weight loss and electrochemical method were introduced to characterize their corrosion resistance, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study was used to characterize the passive film composition. The results show that the corrosion resistance of metallic glass is significantly improved with Ti addition, and Zr dioxides dominate in passive film during corrosion when Ti content is low. High Ti addition can lead to an obvious accumulation of Ti dioxides, which results in a thicker, Ti-enriched protective passive film.
