THE EFFECT OF IRON ADDITION ON THE CORROSION RESISTANCE AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF MODIFIED ALUMINIUM BRONZE WITH CHROMIUM ADDITION

The Authors, of Arya Mehr University of Technology, Tehran,present the results of an experimental investigation on the effect of chromium addition on the corrosion resistance of aluminium bronzes, with and without iron being present. It is found that maximum improvement in corrosion resistance in the presence of iron is obtained with 0.9%Cr; in the absence of iron, it is obtained with 0.6%Cr. Chromium addition results in a greater improvement in corrosion resistance when iron is not present. Although iron can improve the mechanical properties, if it exceeds 3.8% these properties are impaired; a compromise in the amount of iron addition therefore appears to be necessary in the interests of obtaining an improvement in both corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Order from BSRA as No. 49,406.
