• 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.

• 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.
