Title: Mechanism of Cerium Ion on the Enhanced Corrosion Resistance of Steel Bar
Abstract: A cerium film was prepared on the surface of rebar by chemical conversion method to enhance its corrosion resistance. The film in the simulated concrete pore solution was measured by electrochemical method, transmission electron microscope (TEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The effect of temperature on film formation was studied and the optimum temperature was determined at 35 oC. The film produced by too high formation temperature has more defects, resulting the lower corrosion resistance. The Ce film resistance increased with time evolution until 800 h, then decreased and stabilized. The Ce film layer was a double-layer film structure, the upper layer was an oxide of cerium, and the underlayer was an oxide of iron. Results revealed that after being immersed in the simulated concrete pore solution, the corrosion resistance of the Ce film was enhanced by self-densification.
