Synergetic active corrosion protection of AA2024-T3 by 2D- anionic and 3D-cationic nanocontainers loaded with Ce and mercaptobenzothiazole


In the current paper the corrosion inhibition synergy between Ce3+ loaded NaY-zeolite (NaY-Ce) and 2-Mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) loaded Zn-Al layered double hydroxide (LDH-MBT) containers is presented. Solutions and water-borne epoxy coatings containing different ratios of the two loaded carriers were prepared and their protection of AA2024-T3 and damaged coatings characterized using global and local electrochemical techniques and other complementary tools. The coatings containing container-combinations showed exceptional corrosion protection over a broad range of NaY-Ce:LDH-MBT weight ratios, with 90:10 being the optimal. The current work landmarks the need for synergetic inhibiting studies devoted to carrier-inhibitor systems in coatings.
