Investigation Of Blister Formed On Coated Mild Steel Using Scanning Kelvin Probe

Zalilah Sharer Sahir, John Malcolm Sykes

Abstract



Degradasi pada besi bersalut cat dari segi gelembung yang terbentuk telah dikaji selepas direndam di dalam larutan 3% natrium klorida dan 3% ammonium klorida. Imbasan probe Kelvin (SKP) telah digunakan untuk menghasilkan peta keupayaan kimia–elektro bagi mengenal pasti kawasan anod dan katod dibawah gelembung dan kawasan persekitarannya. Bagi gelembung yang terhasil pada panel yang direndam dalam larutan 3% sodium klorida, peta upaya SKP menunjukkan gelembung yang terbentuk adalah di kawasan katod yang disebabkan oleh alkali, dimana kawasan anod juga dilihat terbentuk berdekatan. Walhal bagi peta upaya SKP untuk gelembung yang terhasil pada panel yang direndam di dalam larutan 3% ammonium klorida menunjukkan kehadiran kawasan katod dikelilingi oleh kawasan anod.

Kata kunci: Cat organik; imbasan probe Kelvin; gelembung

The degradation of a coated metal in term of the area underneath a blister has been studied after being immersed in 3% sodium chlorida and 3% ammonium chloride solution. Scanning Kelvin probe (SKP) was used to map electrochemical potentials, identifying anodic and cathodic regions underneath a blister and the surrounding coating. For blisters formed on coated panel immersed in sodium chlorida solution, SKP potential map reveals that the blister has formed at a cathode due to alkali but anodes form nearby (not remote). Meanwhile SKP potential map for blister formed on coated panel in 3% ammonium chloride reveals the presence of cathodic regions within the anodic areas.

Key words: Organic coating; scanning Kelvin Probe; blister
