• Effect of temperature on structure and corrosion resistance for electroless NiWP coating

The effect of plating temperatures between 60 and 90$^{\circ}$C on structure and corrosion resistance for electroless NiWP coatings on AZ91D magnesium alloy substrate was investigated. Results show that temperature has a significant influence on the surface morphology and corrosion resistance of the NiWP alloy coating. An increase in temperature will lead to an increase in coating thickness and form a more uniform and dense NiWP coatings. Moreover, cracks were observed by SEM in coating surface and interface at the plating temperature of 90$^{\circ}$C. Coating corrosion resistance is highly dependent on temperature according to polarization curves. The optimum temperature isfound to be 80$^{\circ}$C and the possible reasons of corrosion resistance for NiWP coating have been discussed.

• Effects of electrolyte concentration and current density on the properties of electro-deposited NiFeW alloy coatings

NiWP alloy coatings were prepared by electrodeposition, and the effects of ferrous chloride (FeCl$_2$), sodium tungstate (Na$_2$WO$_4$) and current density ($D_K$) on the properties of the coatings were studied. The results show that upon increasing the concentration of FeCl$_2$, initially the Fe content of the coating increased and then tended to be stable; the deposition rate and microhardness of coating decreased when the cathodic current efficiency ($\eta$) initially increased and then decreased; and for a FeCl$_2$ concentration of 3.6 gl$^{−1}, the cathodic current efficiency reached its maximum of 74.23%. Upon increasing the concentration of Na$_2$WO$_4$, the W content and microhardness of the coatings increased; the deposition rate andthe cathode current efficiency initially increased and then decreased. The cathodic current efficiency reached the maximum value of 70.33% with a Na$_2$WO$_4$concentration of 50 gl$^{−1}$, whereas the deposition rate is maximum at 8.67$\mu$mh$^{−1}$with a Na$_2$WO$_4$concentration of 40 gl$^{−1}$. Upon increasing the$D_K$, the deposition rate, microhardness, Fe and W content of the coatings increased, the cathodic current efficiency increases first increased and then decreased. When$D_K$was 4 A dm$^{−2}$,the current efficiency reached the maximum of 73.64%. • Properties of ternary NiFeW alloy coating by jet electrodeposition In this paper, ternary NiFeW alloy coatings were prepared by jet electrodeposition, and the effects of lord salt concentration, jet speed, current density and temperature on the properties of the coatings, including the composition, microhardness, surface morphology, structure and corrosion resistance, were investigated. Results reveal that the depositionrate reaches a maximum value of 27.30$\mu$m h$^{−1}\$, and the total current efficiency is above 85%. The maximum microhardness is 605 HV, and the wear and corrosion resistance values of the alloy coating are good. Moreover, the ternary NiFeW alloy coating is smooth and bright, and it presents a dense cellular growth. The alloy plating is nanocrystalline and has face-centered cubic structure.
