Recent research has shown that the Nano coating materials play a vital role in improving performance of corrosion resistance in hostile environment and enhancing the mechanical properties and reducing the dimension changes. Due to the superior capabilities of Nano coating in many benefits which can be achieved, in addition to corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, make it smoother, stronger and improves its adhesive properties. In this work, the effect of anti-corrosive nanomaterials (Cobalt and Zinc) coating on chemical corrosion behavior and mechanical properties of carbon steel cylindrical pipe were studied in detail. The Nano-coating was done with different thicknesses (300nm,600nm,900nm and 10 μm), then analyzed using ANSYS software technology (version .19).The results showed that there is a strong relationship of corrosion improvement with improving mechanical properties, especially surface deformation resistance, elastic strain and stresses reduction of the inner pipe surface which contains a pressurized corrosive fluid. The maximum improvement was with the thickness of the cobalt coating (10 μm. The result of improvement in corrosion resistance of the cobalt-coated surface is approximately (5.165%) compared to the uncoated surface, also, the results showed an improvement in mechanical resistance and corrosion res istance because of deposition of cobalt particles better than zinc particles in all different thicknesses, with a maximum of about (66%) compared to zinc. Therefore, can conclude that the improving corrosion resistance due to coating with nanomaterials is very promising.
