The application of a number of different organic compounds as corrosion inhibitors was investigated in primers for aluminum and titanium alloys exposed to marine atmospheres. The candidate compounds belong to the classes of hydroxy-anthraquinones, lake forming diazo compounds phthaleins, triphenyl-methanes and phthalocyanines. 1-hydroxyanthraquinone, Na-phthalocyanine, pyrocatechol violet and orange II (azo dye) compared favorably with alizarin for aluminum. Further, these studies opened up the possibilities of a wide range of organic compounds for corrosion inhibition investigations. The bleed-through behaviour of alizarin through epoxy topcoat was observed to be obviated by using 1:1 alizarin:strontium chromate. Na-phthalocyanin and pyrocatechol violet-based primers did not show this bleed-through behavior. Results of the investigations on stress corrosion of titanium Ti-6Al-4V alloy did not prove conclusive. (Author)
