Corrosion Studies of Silicon Carbide (Sic) Reinforced Al 8088 Nano Composites (Ncs) in an Alkaline Medium Using Weight Loss Method
8088 reinforced with Silicon carbide particulate nano composite through liquid melt metallurgy method and to look at corrosion conduct. nano composite containing 2, 4 and 6 percent of SiC are prepared consistent with ASTM requirements. Weight loss approach is carried out in 0.025N, 0.05N and 0.1N answers of KOH. The corrosion price decreases with boom in the publicity time for all the specimens and decreases with the boom in reinforcement content material of thenano composites. Sincenano composites undergo much less corrosion compared to base alloy, which can be used for the manufacture of equipments used in marine environment.
