This study assesses the effectiveness of wire arc sprayed aluminum coatings for protecting welded super duplex stainless steel (UNS S32750) in subsea applications. Pitting and crevice corrosion tests were conducted at different potentials in recirculated synthetic seawater maintained at 90 °C with an acidity of 7.5-8.1 pH. After 90 days, the samples were examined, showing no signs of corrosion even in areas where coating defects were present.
