CORROSION OF Cu AND Cu-Ni ALLOYS IN 0. 5M NaCl AND IN SYNTHETIC SEAWATER.
Electrochemical corrosion rates of Cu and Cu-Ni alloys have been measured in oxygenated 0. 5M NaCl and in synthetic seawater using the Tafel extrapolation procedure. In addition, Cu corrosion has been measured with the linear polarization procedure. A rotating disk electrode system was used in the measurements with rotation rate varying from 500 to 6000 rpm. The corrosion characteristics of Cu and 90Cu-10Ni alloy in the two media, and 70Cu-30Ni alloy in 0. 5M NaCl have been found to be similar. The 70-30 alloy in synthetic seawater behaved differently.
