The corrosion resistance of phosphate coating obtained by anodic electrochemical treatment at 4–6 mA/cm2 is addressed in this paper. The corrosion performance of these coatings is also compared with the coatings obtained by chemical treatment. The regenerated phosphoric acid under the influence of anodic current causes a large variation in morphological features of the coatings. Immersion and salt spray tests indicate the ability of these coatings to act as a barrier film on mild steel. Polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopic (EIS) studies indicate that the corrosion resistance of phosphate coatings obtained by anodic treatment decreases with increase in current density employed for deposition. In spite of their higher coating weight, the corrosion resistance of phosphate coatings obtained by anodic treatment is inferior to those obtained by chemical treatment. The porosity or discontinuities created due to the dissolution of the coating under the influence of anodic current are considered responsible for the inferior corrosion resistance of these coatings. The study concludes that anodic treatment has only a limited scope for preparing phosphate coatings with improved corrosion resistance.
