Electrochemical impedance study models anticorrosive performance of coatings
Environmental characteristics such as the time of wetness, chloride and sulfate depositions, and ultraviolet radiation were defined as explanatory variables.
Good prediction of |Z|ω→0
The results obtained helped to establish a relationship between low-frequency impedance (|Z|ω→0), acquired from electrochemical impedance spectra, and the explanatory variables. An adjustment factor was calculated for each coating against the most aggressive natural exposure, resulting in a good prediction of |Z|ω→0 and the performance of the coatings for other outdoor tests.
