|Title:||The effects of tertiary dendrite arm spacing and segregation on the corrosion behavior of a Pb-Sb alloy for lead-acid battery components|
|Abstract:||The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of segregation and of the presence of tertiary dendrite arms in the microstructural arrangement of a Pb-Sb alloy on its resultant corrosion behavior. In this context. a water-cooled unidirectional solidification system was used to obtain alloy samples having different dendritic patterns. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic polarization curves were used to analyze the corrosion resistance in a 0.5 M H2SO4 solution at 25 degrees C. Three different dendritic arrays were investigated as a function of the cooling rate and antimony macrosegregation profile. It was found that the tertiary dendritic arms associated with the antimony segregation have an important role on the resulting corrosion response. It is shown that the sample with a well defined tertiary dendritic array provide a more homogeneously distributed interdendritic eutectic mixture exhibiting better corrosion protection.
