The polarisation behaviour of freshly polished UNS C70610 (CN 102) 90–10 copper–nickel has been examined in fully characterised seawaters using the rotating disc electrode (RDE) and the rotating cylinder electrode (RCE) geometries. The charge and mass transport controlled responses of both the cathodic and anodic reactions are presented as a function of both laminar and turbulent undisturbed fluid flow. At low values of polarisation applied over short exposure periods (<1 h), the anodic behaviour of non-aged material is controlled by the selective dissolution of the copper component of the alloy. Under conditions of complete mass transport control, oxygen reduction proceeds via the irreversible direct four-electron reduction to the hydroxide ion. Above a critical range of Reynolds numbers the rate of both the reduction and oxidation reactions tended towards a more reversible character. This change in mechanism, however, was not observed for unalloyed copper and was attributed to a convective-diffusion-based modification of the corrosion product film.
