This paper presents the electrochemical characterization of a chromium carbide-NiCr coating applied using high-speed flame spraying. It examines the behavior of the complete system, the steel, the steel coating, and the coating immersed in NaCl solution alone. The paper discusses electrochemical measurement methods such as the measurement of polarization resistance, anodic polarization, and open circuit potential. The tests are compared with each other and with results from metallographic examinations. The structure was characterized by light and scanning microscopy. In addition, an analysis of the residual water was carried out using an ICP technique. The paper also includes a study of the various mechanisms that could affect the behavior of such coating types in a corrosive environment. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
