Resumen

This investigation aims to analyse the effect of the exposure angle on the corrosion rate of mild steel. Test samples were exposed to a marine environment at 0°, 30°, 45° and 90° inclination. To determine the effects of contaminants on the protective characteristics of the rusts, Cl and SO2 contents in the atmosphere as well as SEM-EDX analyses and polarisation curves on the weathered samples were performed. Results demonstrated that the exposure angle influences the corrosion rate, as also the morphology of the rust, but with no effect on rust composition.
