Abstract
This work compares the resistance against marine corrosion of several paints before and after being modified by adding a conducting polymer derived from polythiophene. The selected paints, which were applied to the naval steel St F111, are primers specially indicated for protection in marine environments. The physical properties of both the unmodified and the modified paints were characterized using viscosity measurements, FTIR and thermal analyses, and mechanical properties evaluations. Results...
