As part of the research to determine substitute alloying elements, investigations have been conducted by the Bureau of Mines to determine the effects of different alloying elements, introduced into the substrate by ion implantation, on the corrosion and oxidation behavior of steel. This investigation involved using the three-point linear polarization test to determine the effects of lead and titanium implantation on the aqueous corrosion behavior of iron in a dilute sulfuric acid solution. This technique proved to be a quick, accurate corrosion rate test suitable for evaluating the ion-implanted alloys so that an assessment could be made of the effects of the specific alloy additions on corrosion behavior.
