Abstract: This paper presents our research on the reinforcement with 1% of carbon nanotubes (CNT) for a ceramic Al2O3 coating applied by air plasma spray (APS) on CT3 steel. The corrosion resistance of both CNTs reinforced and non-CNTs reinforced Al2O3 coatings were investigated by using different techniques: potentiodynamic polarization; electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS); salt spray and erosion corrosion tests.
The obtained results show positive effects of CNT to improve the corrosion protection of the Al2O3 coating: time of appearance of first rust points on the surface in the salt spray test increased from 2 hours for pure Al2O3coating to 24 hours for the CNTs-Al2O3 one; the erosion-corrosion resistance of the CNTs-Al2O3 coating increased about 17% in comparison with that one of the Al2O3 coating.
