The importance of dimensional changes in a corroding system metal/polymer films/ electrolyte is demonstrated by studying the impedance behaviour of 55%Al-Zn with a very thin polymer film coating, upon degradation in an aqueous NaCl solution. The effective polymer film thickness proves to account for the associated effects, thus allowing the interpretation of the evolution of the corroding system in terms of changes in phasial and interfacial properties.
