Metallic components of amphibious vehicles are exposed to aggressive conditions during their service lives. These components mostly suffer from corrosive species such as chlorides. Selected steel types and aluminum alloys, which are used in manufacturing the hulls of armored amphibious vehicles, were subjected to accelerated corrosion tests in synthetic seawater. Corrosion reaction kinetics were investigated for organic coated and uncoated samples. Besides, the effects of scratches on the coated surfaces on corrosion behavior were also studied. Tafel behavior, polarization resistance, coating capacitance, and solution (electrolyte) resistance data were obtained by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiostatic test techniques. The results obtained from this study will be used to simulate cathodic protection that can be applied to steel and aluminium alloy components in marine environment.
