Abstract:Electroless Nickel-phosphorus (EN) coatings provide high performance in various industrial fields due to their unique properties such as excellent corrosion and wear resistance. This paper aims to study the effect of ZnO nano-particles addition on corrosion behavior of EN coatings. Various amounts of ZnO nano-particles with average diameter of 50 nm were added to hypophosphite reduced EN bath to deposit composite coatings. Microstructural investigations were carried out via scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Chemical composition of the coatings was investigated via energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and polarization tests were used to study the corrosion properties of the coatings in a 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution. SEM investigations showed that the coating deposited from the bath containing 2 g/L of ZnO nano-particles had the most amount of nano-particles incorporated in the coating. EDS results revealed that incorporation of ZnO nano-particles in the composite coating resulted in a decrease in phosphorous content of the coating. Corrosion tests showed that corrosion resistance of the electroless Ni-P/nanoZnO composite coatings in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution had an improvement in comparison to electroless Ni-P base coating
