On the Zr electrochemical conversion of additively manufactured AlSi10Mg: The role of the microstructure Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Operando odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (ORP-EIS) for in-situ monitoring of the Zr-based conversion coating growth in the presence of (in)organic additives Vrije Universiteit Brussel
On the use of AES data analysis to determine local enrichments of conversion coating elements at intermetallic particles on rolled Al Vrije Universiteit Brussel
pretreatment on rolled automotive aluminium samples (AA5182) is analysed. Due to
its nanometre lateral and depth resolution, Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) is used
to analyse the CC distribution at surface cathodic intermetallic particles. As a result
of its high surface sensitivity, the AES technique is very susceptible to differences ...
The Investigation of Ti/Zr No-Rinse Sprayed Conversion Coating Applied on Automotive Aluminium Coils Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Influence of surface hydroxyls on the formation of Zr-based conversion coatings on AA6014 aluminum alloy Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Initiation and growth of modified Zr-based conversion coatings on multi-metal surfaces Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The effect of conversion bath convection on the formation of Zr-based thin-film coatings on multi-metal surfaces Vrije Universiteit Brussel
A combined XPS/ToF-SIMS approach for the 3D compositional characterization of Zr-based conversion of galvanized steel Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The present study investigates the surface and in-depth characteristics, and deposition mechanism of zirconium-based conversion coatings on hot dip galvanized (HDG) steel substrates for automotive applications, based on zinc galvanizing baths with small additions of aluminium. This contribution provides scientific proof of the chemical heterogeneity both at the surface and along the depth of the Zr-based conversion coatings on galvanized ...
