Aluminium-based fibre–metal laminates are lucrative candidates for aerospace manufacturers since they are lightweight and high-strength materials. The flower extract of aerva lanata was studied in order to prevent the effect of corrosion on the aluminium-based fibre–metal laminates (FMLs) in basic media. It is considered an eco-friendly corrosion inhibitor using natural sources. Its flower species belong to the Amaranthaceae family. The results of the Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) show that this flower extract includes organic compounds such as aromatic links, heteroatoms, and oxygen, which can be used as an organic corrosion inhibitor in an acidic environment. The effectiveness of the aerva-lanata flower behaviour in acting as an inhibitor of the corrosion process of FMLs was studied in 3.5% NaCl solution. The inhibition efficiency was calculated within a range of concentration of the inhibitor at room temperature, using the weight-loss method, potentiodynamic polarization measurements and electrochemical-impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results indicate a characterization of about 87.02% in the presence of 600 ppm of inhibitor. The Tafel curve in the polarization experiments shows an inhibition efficiency of 88%. The inhibition mechanism was the absorption on the FML surface, and its absorption was observed with the aid of the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. This complex protective film occupies a larger surface area on the surface of the FML. Hence, by restricting the surface of the metallic layer from the corrosive medium, the charge and ion switch at the FML surface is reduced, thereby increasing the corrosion resistance.

Abstract

Aluminium-based fibre–metal laminates are lucrative candidates for aerospace manufacturers since they are lightweight and high-strength materials. The flower extract of aerva lanata was studied in order to prevent the effect of corrosion on the aluminium-based fibre–metal laminates (FMLs) in basic media. It is considered an eco-friendly corrosion inhibitor using natural sources. Its flower species belong to the Amaranthaceae family. The results of the Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) show that this flower extract includes organic compounds such as aromatic links, heteroatoms, and oxygen, which can be used as an organic corrosion inhibitor in an acidic environment. The effectiveness of the aerva-lanata flower behaviour in acting as an inhibitor of the corrosion process of FMLs was studied in 3.5% NaCl solution. The inhibition efficiency was calculated within a range of concentration of the inhibitor at room temperature, using the weight-loss method, potentiodynamic polarization measurements and electrochemical-impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results indicate a characterization of about 87.02% in the presence of 600 ppm of inhibitor. The Tafel curve in the polarization experiments shows an inhibition efficiency of 88%. The inhibition mechanism was the absorption on the FML surface, and its absorption was observed with the aid of the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. This complex protective film occupies a larger surface area on the surface of the FML. Hence, by restricting the surface of the metallic layer from the corrosive medium, the charge and ion switch at the FML surface is reduced, thereby increasing the corrosion resistance.
