CATHODIC PROTECTION OF 19 ALUMINUM ALLOYS EXPOSED TO SEA WATER - CORROSION BEHAVIOR

DATA ARE REPORTED ON THE CORROSION BEHAVIOR AND ELECTROCHEMICAL POTENTIALS OF 19 STRUCTURAL ALUMINUM ALLOYS IN QUIESCENT SEA WATER. A RELATIONSHIP WAS DEVELOPED BETWEEN THE ELECTRODE POTENTIAL AND CORROSION SEVERITY. CATHODIC PROTECTION FROM GALVANIC ANODES WAS EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING THE CORROSION DAMAGE TO ACCEPTABLE LIMITS FOR MOST OF THE ALLOYS STUDIED. /AUTHOR/
