In this study, a filiform corrosion test was combined with a galvanic couple by using dissimilar metal fasteners to join two sheets of aluminum alloy, thus producing a model lap joint.
For panels phosphated using different galvanic couples, the corrosion current density is less for those obtained using the MS-Ti couple with 1:3 area ratio.
