Title

Corrosion of Chemically and Vacuum Deposited Ag Films on Glass by Wet HCI Vapor

Abstract

The corrosion of chemically and vacuum deposited Ag films on an aluminoborosilicate and a commercial soda lime glass by wet HCl vapor was studied. A strong correlation was found between the chemical durability of Ag films and microstructure. A higher concentration of defects in Ag films accelerated corrosion. Chemically deposited Ag films were more corrosion resistant than vacuum deposited films due to their lower microvoid density. Ag films on the aluminoborosilicate glass were corroded less rapidly than those on the soda lime glass.
