In cermet coating such as WC-based coating, the coexisting of ceramic and metal results in micro-galvanic corrosion due to different corrosion potential of each element. In this study, WC-17wt%Co was used. The corrosion behaviour of the coating was evaluated by potentiodynamic test in two different electrolyte which are 0.5 M sulphuric acid and 3% by weight alkaline drilling fluid. This coating shows higher corrosion potential in acid electrolyte compares to in alkaline electrolyte. Clear passivation is seen for both cases. Raman shift is able to detect W03 and W03H20 as a corrosion product after corrosion test.
