The protective films were realised on carbon steel substrate. The electrochemical measurements (electrochemical impedance spectroscopy- EIS and anodic polarisation) were carried out in 3%NaCl solution, at 25 degrees C temperature during a 1500 hours period. The interpretation of the impedance spectra established an electrical equivalent circuit with four time constants for the tested carbon steel/alkyd film systems in electrolyte solution, fitted to the experimental data. The water and ions permeability of the films was determined. It resulted that for a good performance of the pigment, its fineness degree must be < 0.5 mu m and the adsorption capacity in 40-50% range. The white titanium dioxide pigment presents the highest beneficial effect on the alkyd film performance.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48949||ISSN:||0035-3930||Source:||Revue Roumaine de Chimie[ISSN 0035-3930],v. 51, p. 1079-1086|
