Atmospheric corrosion of patina steel

International Seminars of Frontiers in Materials Science UPM-CIE Moncloa


Title: Atmospheric corrosion of patina steel

Date: Monday 7th of October at 09:30

Place: E.T.S. Civil Engineering, basement 1

Speaker: Manuel Morcillo Linares

Free admission

Patina steels (commonly known as corten steels) are low-alloy steels of high mechanical resistance and scarce content of carbon. They were added 1-2% of alloys elements in order to increase its resistance to atmospheric corrosion. The common alloying elements are phosphorus, silicon, manganese, copper, chromium and nickel.

The aspects covered in the conference are as follows:
1.- Antecedents. The effects of alloying elements.
2.- Specifications.
3.- Requirements for the formation of protective layers of rust.
4.- Time to stabilize the layer of rust and corrosion rate at steady state.
5.- Progress in the scientific knowledge of protective layers of rust.
6.- Effect of Exposure to the Atmosphere.
7.- Prediction of long term corrosion.
8.- Design of new patina steels.
