Comparative Assessment of Corrosion Behaviour of Mild Steels 3, 20 and 08KP in Tap Water

Comparative assessment of corrosion stability of mild steels 3, 20 and 08KP in tap water was conducted. Similar corrosion behavior of these steels was shown by weight loss, linear polarization resistance and polarization curves techniques both for pretreated and corroded surfaces. The discrepancy of the results obtained with the LPR and weight loss techniques was found out and its possible reasons were discussed.
