Abstract

Specimens of commercial galvanized steel wire were exposed to the atmospheric environment for periods up to six months. The corrosion film formed was characterized by Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD). With these techniques we analyse morphology and composition as a function of time.
