The purpose of this work was to determine the rate of growth of the inhibiting aluminum-rich alloy later, to identify the compounds that comprise it and to examine the nature of its growth. Specifically, the weight of the aluminum-rich alloy layer was measured as a function of time and temperature on coatings made in Special High Grade zinc baths containing 0.20% and 0.30% aluminum. In addition, low and intermediate iron levels were studied in the 0.20% aluminum bath and only the low iron level was studied in the 0.30% aluminum bath.
