Coatings on Aluminum to Reduce Incendivity in Methane-air Mixtures.
Trans Soc Min Eng AIME 1987 280:1869-1876
This paper describes the effect of coatings on the incendive properties of aluminum alloy 6061-t651 in air-6.4% Ch4. This alloy was studied for collisions between rusted steel and both uncoated and coated projectiles in simulation of the rough handling of equipment in coal mines. The ignition probability using uncoated alloy projectiles increased with increasing relative humidity and appeared to be influenced by atmospheric ozone content. The incendive properties of both the uncoated and coated alloy depended on the type of rust used, but the dependence of the coated alloy was very different from that of the uncoated alloy.
