Abstract: The aim of the present study was to classify the surface oxide layers formed on a Fe-Cr-Ni alloy according to their corrosion resistance in Hank’s solution and mouthwashes by SEM and electrochemical techniques. The SEM micrographs showed the presence of localized corrosion and the polarization curves showed that the passive layer is less stable in the presence of Hank’s solution than of mouthwashes, as a result of the presence of chloride ions.

Keywords: corrosion resistance - orthodontic wire - mouthwashes - Hank’s solution - passive layer
