The corrosion and contact resistances of different coated and uncoated stainless steel grades were studied with a multisinglecell. MEAs and exhaust water were analyzed for accumulated iron after several long steady-state measurements. The interfacial contact resistances were measured before and after each test. Low contact resistance was achieved with the coated samples. There was large variation in the corrosion results due to differences in the coating quality.
