Abstract

Steel corrosion in soil is due to electrochemical oxidation of iron coupled to reduction of O2 on the steel surface. Methods to determine the role of the electrochemical reduction products on coating disbonding are being developed and are reported. The formation and breakdown of oxides on the steel are expected to effect the interfacial compound and chemical reactions with the polymer coating will result in degradation of the polymer. Electrochemical methods were used to study the surface oxides and O2 reduction on steel. Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was used to study the effects of O2 reduction products on FBE coated steel.
