EFFECT OF CORROSION INHIBITORS ON COOLING CURVE BEHAVIOR OF SOYBEAN OIL-BASED QUENCHANTS,
New challenges in heat treatment and surface engineering – conference in honour of prof. Božidar Liščić (09 – 12 June 2009, Dubrovnik – Cavtat, Croatia)

ABSTRACT:
The relative inhibitory effect of a series of common yellow-metal (brass) corrosion inhibitors was studied potentiodynamically in a saline solution. The results of this study showed that all of the corrosion inhibitors examined could potentially exhibit substantial cooling time and rate reduction. The magnitude of this effect was corrosion inhibitor specific. Corrosion and cooling curve supporting data are provided.
