In the present work, thick layer activation (TLA) was applied for corrosion monitoring of a stainless steel and carbon steel in acid solutions containing chloride. The results of TLA were compared to the results of electromechanical impedance spectrometry (EIS). Dynamic corrosion tests with activated and non-activated steel specimens were carried out in a circulation loop system.

The results show that TLA is a viable technique for the measurement of material loss resulting from uniform corrosion process. A specific property of TLA is that the obtained data have a direct relation to mass loss.

Good correlation was observed between the results obtained for the examined steels by using TLA and EIS as a function of immersion time. me.
