Abstract : For the past year the formation of calcareous deposits on metal surfaces under cathodic polarization has been investigated. Test procedures and cells have been developed for this work and a temperature control system has been designed and built which allows pertinent temperatures to be obtained for experiments. The potentiostatic current decay on several substrates with various surface finishes has been determined. Potentiostatic versus galvanostatic testing has been contrasted. New methods of quantifying both the electrical and physical properties of the films are currently being developed.
