Effects of Coating Weight and Pretreatment on the Painted Corrosion Performance of Coated Steel Sheet 970732
A program was initiated to determine corrosion performance of coated sheet products. The program examined the performance of galvannealed, hot-dip galvanized and electroplated zinc coated steel sheet in a variety of cyclic laboratory corrosion tests. Both perforation and cosmetic corrosion susceptibility were evaluated. Materials were pretreated using immersion and spray phosphate systems and were also prepared without a phosphate pretreatment. Results of these studies will be presented in this paper.
