Abstract

Nickel-aluminum bronze (NAB) is a metallic alloy that is widely used for ship valves and propellers, among other marine applications. While displaying a good combination of corrosion resistance and strength, NAB is still prone to different forms of corrosion, such as stagnant sea water corrosion, selective phase corrosion, and cavitation erosion. Surface treatments to reduce the severity of the corrosion attack of NAB have been investigated, ...
