Abstract: The attractiveness of electroplating for the synthesis of advanced materials is linked to large selection of plating conditions coupled with different mass transfer processes towards the cathode, and this allows the tailoring of different properties of many electrodeposited coatings. This theme has been exploited effectively in the development of a new class of coatings; called composition modulated multilayered (CMM), or in short laminar coatings. The work embodied in this paper is to demonstrate how the corrosion resistance of monolayer Ni-W alloys can be increased to many fold of its magnitude by multilayer deposition. Ni-W coatings have been deposited on mild steel (MS) in a laminar multilayer pattern from a citrate bath using single bath technique (SBT). Electrodeposits having alternate layers of alloys, having different compositions were developed by modulating the direct current (DC). CMM coating configurations have been optimized from a newly developed bath, in terms of current pulse height and thickness of each layer to maximize its corrosion protection ability, in relation to its monolayer coating, developed from same bath for same time. The process and product of the Ni-W coatings have been characterized using different instrumental methods, such as cyclic voltammetry (CV), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) study. The better corrosion resistance behaviour of CMM Ni-W coatings has been analysed in the light of increased surface areas of the coatings due to layering, and results are discussed. 2015 Elsevier B.V.
