Abstract

Stannate conversion coating treatment has been proposed to improve the corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys in corrosive chloride media. This coating treatment is easy to apply at a relatively low cost and without the need of significant safety equipment. A new stannate coating formulation has been designed to add self-healing functionality to the magnesium alloy. The self-healing capability of stannate-coated samples and their performance ...
