The protective effectiveness of a number of protective coatings on carbon steels, namely, pyrolytic carbon chrome plating, thermal diffusion chromeplating and galvanizing, chemical nickel chrome plating, at their corrosion in NACE environment saturated with hydrogen sulfide, under application of a constant tensile stress or a low rate deformation (3.6∙10–8 м/c) has been studied.
The coatings are differentiated according to the protective effectiveness. It is shown that the method of application of a deformation with low rate is more informative in this case than a permanent presence of tensile stress.
