ABSTRACT Potentiodynamic results of anodic behavior of Zn5Al and Zn55Al alloys, alloyed with Beryllium in the ambience of NaCl electrolyte and their microstructures are studied. They showed that a small addition of Beryllium (0.005 - 0.05 wt%) improves the corrosion resistance of Zn5Al and Zn55Al original alloys to 2 - 3 times by changing grains shape to spherical and changing sizes to small grains. The proposed composition of Zinc-Aluminum alloy, which contains of Beryllium, can be used as anodic coatings to protect steel products and constructions against corrosion.
