Abstract

The corrosion resistance of Al-Fe coatings increases as a protective LiAlO2layer forms. If, however, the Al-Fe coatings lack sufficient aluminium for maintaining this protective layer, the corrosion resistance of the coating is degraded by the growth of non-protective scales, such as LiFeO2. In this study, the degradation behaviour of Al-Fe coatings is investigated in the wet-seal environment of molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC). Al-Fe coated specimens with various amounts of aluminium in the range 8-70 at.% and bulk specimens of Fe-23.9 Al (at.%) are prepared. A corrosion test is performed in Li/K carbonate systems at 650 °C with a single-cell and an immersion test. Test results reveal that aluminium contents in the coatings should be higher than 25 at.% in order to form and maintain a protective LiAlO2layer. In addition to aluminium content, the influence of microstructural features on the degradation behaviour of Al-Fe coatings is discussed. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
