Salt Water Immersion Corrosion Testing

In general, there are no significant signs of corrosion or overall uniform attack on the Liquidmetal alloy specimens. We did observe some rounding of previously more pronounced/sharp topography and we could also see some pitting, though sparse.

No visible signs of corrosion could be seen on the stainless steel or titanium specimens either. We may exchange these specimens for thin polished plates instead since we would prefer to have comparable specimen geometries and surface finishes.

The cumulative mass loss after two months was insignificant for all specimens, except for LM-601 and LM601-ZB which had measurable quantities of mass loss, 0.03% & 0.02%, respectively.
