The purpose of this study is to improve the anticorrosion performance of low nickel stainless steel (AISI 201) in 3.5% NaCl by electroactive polyimide/copper oxide (EPI/CuO) composites coating. Design/methodol./approach: Electroactive polyimide/copper oxide (EPI/CuO) composites were prepared by oxidative coupling polymerization followed by thermal imidization method. The functional and structural properties of composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transmission infra-red and ultra violet-visible spectroscopy and the surface topog. was characterized by field emission scanning electron microscope anal. and anticorrosion performance in 3.5 Weight% NaCl was evaluated by electrochem. techniques. The obtained results of electrochem. techniques measurement indicated that the composites coated samples give better corrosion protection against attacking electrolyte. The ever-increasing price of nickel (Ni) is driving the industries to use low-Ni austenitic stainless steels (ASSs). However, it exhibits relatively poor corrosion resistance as compared with conventional Cr-Ni ASSs. Nonetheless, its corrosion resistance can be enhanced by polymeric (electroactive polyimide [EPI]) coating. CuO particles exhibit the hydrophobic properties and can be used as inorganic filler to incorporate in EPI to further enhance the corrosion protection. The present research paper is beneficial for industries to use low-cost AISI 201, enhance its corrosion resistance and replace the use of costly conventional Cr-Ni ASSs. The experimental procedure involved many compounds, such as 5,5′-((Propane-2,2-diylbis(4,1-phenylene))bis(oxy))bis(isobenzofuran-1,3-dione) (cas: 38103-06-9) .
5,5′-((Propane-2,2-diylbis(4,1-phenylene))bis(oxy))bis(isobenzofuran-1,3-dione)(cas: 38103-06-9) is a diallyl based epoxy modification agent that blends with the resin to improve the mechanical property of the epoxy material.Electric Literature of C31H20O8 It is majorly used in novalac based resins, which can be further cured with bismaleimides (BMI) for aerospace, electronics and wireless communication based applications.
