Corrosion and corrosion fatigue of Vitreloy glasses containing low fractions of late transition metals


Corrosion resistance and fatigue performance of Vitreloy glasses with low fractions of late transition metals (LTMs) in 0.6 M NaCl are investigated and compared to a traditional Vitreloy glass and other crystalline alloys. Owing to their ability to form uniform passive films, low LTM Vitreloy glasses exhibit corrosion rates that are an order of magnitude lower than those of other alloys considered. The fatigue ratios in solution are substantially lower than crystalline alloys considered and similar to traditional Vitreloy glasses, which fail at low stresses due to limited repassivation in solution.
