Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The oxidation and corrosion behaviour of alloys limits the performance and lives of engineering components and will remain crucial in the selection of alloys for applications where these properties are pivotal. Apart from well-established applications and platforms, new technologies that require the use of alloys in harsher environments are being developed by the day. An example is in fuel cell systems where metallic components are exposed to very aggressive dual-atmosphere conditions, yet these alloys must perform optimally and meet the required service lives. This calls for more advanced and detailed research works into the oxidation and corrosion of alloys as it is imperative to further the understanding of the degradation behaviour of alloys and their coatings to be able to predict the lives of metallic components and develop unique solutions well-suited for their use in different applications.

This Special Issue welcomes the submission of research and review articles on the oxidation and corrosion behaviour of alloys. The topics of interest include:

  • High-temperature oxidation;
  • Atmospheric corrosion;
  • Dual-atmosphere corrosion;
  • Breakaway corrosion;
  • Corrosion protection treatments and coatings;
  • Effect of deformation and stress on oxidation and corrosion.

Aluminum alloys with low-weight property are promising structure materials for sports equipment. Alloying element-rich second-phase particles create the risk of localized corrosion and result in failure of sports equipment. Chromate conversion coatings as conventional and successful surface treatments were employed to provide a thin but compact film against corrosion. However, chromate species were toxic and carcinogenic for human beings and this process has been highly restricted. In this sense, alternative processes such as trivalent chromium conversion coating with low environmental risk require better corrosion-resistant performance compared to chromate conversion coating. In addition, the closed-loop system of the chromate electroplating process has been used in Europe and the United States. This is also a sustainable process for surface treatment of aluminum alloys applied in sports equipment. The present paper aims to summarize the methods and types of different aluminum alloy surface treatments and compiles the effects of various surface treatments on the corrosion resistance of aluminum alloys. The eco-friendly application of aluminum alloys in the field of sports equipment may be facilitated in the future. Full article
