Abdel Salam Hamdy Makhlouf    Department of Manufacturing Engineering, College of Engineering and Computer Science, University of Texas Pan-American, 1201 West University Dr., Edinburg, Texas, USA

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 ...
