The corrosion is the principal cause of metallic deteriorates. Corrosion originates the fracture, pitting, crack by the oxidation and weakening of the surface. For all this, several anticorrosive processes have been developed to prevent corrosion. In the present work, is described the electrochemical deposition process called Zinagizado, which is based in to add a thin layer of Zn-Al-Ag alloy, previously called ZINAG. This alloy has been studied for their excellent mechanical properties, additionally is been proposed as an alternative of anticorrosive material. Due to the Zinag is consumed first, such as a sacrificial anode.
The deposition of Zinag provides the environmental protection against the corrosion and could be used to covering all kind of steel metallic materials in contact with corrosive medium. The anticorrosive properties, has been obtained by the corrosion resistance of zinc achieve by the aluminium and silver addition, which is cathodically respect to the iron and steel.
