• 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.
