Abstract: New Fe-W-ZrO2 nano-composite layers were prepared by composite electrodeposition technology. The morphology, composition, structure, hardness and corrosion resistance properties of the coatings were systematically characterized by means of SEM, EDS, X-ray diffraction and potentiostat methods. The results showed that when the mass composition of the obtained Fe-W-ZrO2 composite coating was Fe 38.3%(w)、W 52.7%(w)、ZrO2 9.0%(w), the crack condition of Fe-W alloy coatings was improved markedly by the dispersion strengthening effect of the ZrO2 nano-particle. Meanwhile, the composite coatings presented an obvious amorphous characteristics, compact structure, and uniform composition. In comparison with Fe-W alloy coatings, not only the hardness of the composite coatings was higher, but also the corrosion resistance was enhanced evidently in 3.5%(w) NaCl and 0.5 mol·L-1 H2SO4 solution at 30 ℃.
