REGIS JUNIOR, Oscar; SILVA, José Maurílio da; PORTELLA, Kleber Franke  and  PAREDES, Ramon Sigifredo Cortes. Development of Nb2O5|Cu composite as AISI 1020 steel thermal spray coating for protection against corrosion by soil in buried structures. Quím. Nova [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.8, pp.1517-1521. ISSN 0100-4042.

An Nb2O|Cu corrosion-resistant coating was developed and applied onto AISI 1020 steel substrate by Powder Flame Spray. A galvanostatic electrochemical technique was employed, with and without ohmic drop, in four different soils (two corrosively aggressive and two less aggressive). Behavior of coatings in different soils was compared using a cathodic hydrogen reduction reaction (equilibrium potential, overvoltage and exchange current density) focusing on the effect of ohmic drop. Results allow recommendation of Nb2O5|Cu composite for use in buried structure protection.
