Abstract

Hot-dip galvanized zinc coating is the most frequently used among coatings to protect steel against corrosion. When coated steel
sheets are subjected to a corrosive environment, its corrosion behaviour is affected by texture and microstructure variations. The aim
of this research work was to study the texture and corrosion resistance of hot-dip galvanized zinc coatings affected by the coating thick-
ness and chemical composition of the zinc bath. Texture of the coatings was evaluated employing X-ray diffraction whilst its corrosion
behaviour was analyzed using Tafel polarization test. Experimental results showed that (00.2) basal texture component would be weak-
ened by increasing the lead content of the zinc bath and coatings with strong (00.2) texture component have lower corrosion current
density than the coatings with weak (00.2) texture component. Furthermore, it was inferred that by increasing the thickness of the coat-
ings with the same content of lead in the zinc bath, the relative intensity of (00.2) texture component and corrosion resistance of the
coatings would be decreased and conversely, relative intensity of (20.1) high angle pyramidal planes and (10.0) prism planes would
be increased due to establish a balance between surface and strain energies. Besides, five types of morphology were observed on the sur-
face of hot-dip galvanized coatings in dull and bright spangles. Finally, it was recognized that the main corrosion product of the salt
spray test is Simonkolleite.
