Cyclic Polarization Analysis

The data file from a Cyclic Polarization experiment is analyzed using the Cyclic Polarization.Gscript analysis package provided with the DC Corrosion software.

Cyclic Polarization experiments are usually used to obtain qualitative information. The primary use of the analysis packages is for graphing and curve-comparison.

Cyclic Polarization data can be used in Tafel and polarization-resistance calculations to calculate corrosion rates, but we do not recommend this practice. The Scan Rates used in Cyclic Polarization scans are generally too high for collection of accurate data in the vicinity of Ecorr.
