The effects of crystallization on the corrosion resistance of a Cu52.5Ti30Zr11.5Ni6 bulk amorphous alloy in 1 mol/L HCl, and 6 mol/L NaOH solutions were studied. The amorphous alloy was identified by differential thermal analysis(DSC) and by X-ray diffraction(XRD). The partially and fully crystallized alloys were prepared by controlling the annealing temperatures at 738 and 873 K for 1 and 12 min, respectively, and the corrosion resistances of those annealed alloys were compared with that of the amorphous alloy by immersion test and potentiodynamic measurements in 1 mol/L HCl and 6 mol/L NaOH solutions. The results show that the partially crystallized alloy exhibits high corrosion resistance, whereas full crystallization results in deteriorated corrosion resistance compared with that of the as-cast amorphous alloy.
