Abstract

The increasing interest of the steel industry on materials with higher corrosion resistance has led to a continuous development of the zinc-coated steels as well as the corrosion process evaluation techniques. One major goal of the new analysis methods is to reduce the assessing time. A common technique consists in scribing the painted galvanised steel surface in order to expose the steel substrate to the corrosion environment. In this w
