The main object of this project is to develop processes for electrolytical deposition of corrosion resistant coatings of niobium and tantalum from alkali fluoride melts (FLINAK). The aim is to protect components used in chemical industry against corrosion. The work is concentrated partly towards coating of objects of steel with a high complexity of geometry, as well as basic scientific studies of the electrochemistry and complex formation in the molten electrolytes. A number of tantalum coated steel objects have been produced for field tests in Danish industry. The project is carried out in close cooperation with Danfoss A/S.
