Corrosion and Hardness Study of AISI1010 Sputtered with ZrO2
Keywords:Corrosion, EIS, Mild Steel, Sputtering,, Zirconium Dioxide
Production and textile industries have some of the hazards in nature. There are various hazards associated with various process in textile industry like blow room, carding, drawing, roving, spinning, cone winding, chemical storage room which cause increased rate of frequency and severity of accident. Corrosion is one of them. This study brings forward the concept of reducing the corrosion on mild steel pipeline affected by caustic soda lye in textile industry. In this paper, the preparation steps of ZrO2 and pellet for the coating on low carbon steel (AISI 1010) by sputtering coating technique is explained and corrosion test was done. SEM images confirm the uniform coating of ZrO2 on 1010 steel. By referring various acts and standards and recommended action has been suggested to reduce the risk associated with the operation of process in textile industries. Hardness is also measured.
