Abstract The present study compares the corrosion behavior of Al-Sn, Al-Si and Al-Sn-Si alloys processed by spray forming with that of the conventional chill cast ones in aqueous 0.1 N NaCl solution. Spray forming resulted in finer microstructural features with uniform distribution of second-phase particles. The spray formed Al-Si samples showed improved corrosion resistance as compared to the chill cast ones. The Sn containing alloys showed inferior corrosion resistance in the neutral electrolyte. The addition of 12.5 wt.% Si to Al-Sn alloys improves the corrosion resistance.
