Abstract
To protect the occurrence of the oxidation of car body, we developed antioxidizing device made with sacrificial anode. Because car body is made of iron and iron-alloy and oxidation potential of Mg, Al and Zn is higher than that of iron, sacrificial anodes were made with Mg, Al and Zn. Accordingly, Mg, Al and Zn are better oxidizing than car body, iron and iron-alloy can be protected from oxidizing. We have made an antioxidizing device and evaluated their anti-corrosive effect for iron piece in the solution of hydrochloric, nitric and sulfuric acid using balance, SEM and XPS. When iron pieces were connected with antioxidizing device of car body, weight loss by oxidation was remarkably reduced and surface corrosion of iron piece was protected. It was shown that the surface of iron pieces which is not con-nected to the device was changed to iron(��) oxide, Fe$_2$O$_3$. Therefore, if this device is attached to car body, corrosion and oxidation of car body will be reduced, considerably.
