Poliarisation behaviour of primary alloys and compostes of zinc with aluminium, magnesium, cadmium, Al2O3 and TiO2 have been studied in KOH solutions of various concentration. The Rockwell hardness of the binary alloys and binary composites are greater than that of pure Zinc. Aluminium and Al2O3 addition to zinc, appear to increase the corrosion current of these alloys in 20-40% KOH solution while the addition of Mg and TiO2 decreases the corrosion current. the aspect of surface degradation of these electrodes in terms of surface roughness, pitting and anodic growths in dilute KOH solutions have also been studied.
