Summary This paper investigates the effect of heat treatment upon the corrosion morphology and mechanism of ZE41 alloy. The results of optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) together with potentiodynamic polarisation reveal the importance of the microstructure in the initiation and propagation of corrosion in an aqueous environment. The corrosion of the heat-treated alloy is significantly altered due to changes in the microstructure, specifically the Zr-rich regions and the grain boundary T-phase.
