Paper Title:
Corrosion Behavior of Sealed Films on Anodized Al Alloy
  Abstract

Alumina sol sealing is one of new green technology for anodized Al alloy. The corrosion mechanism of films sealed by sol and corrosion behaviour of films sealed by sol, Na2Cr2O7, boiling water were analyzed by their curves of open circuit voltage-time (E-T) and potentiodynamic polarization curve. It is found that corrosion tendency of sol sealing film is less than other sealed films by E-T inspection. Fluctuation of open-circuit potential is furious in the immersing prophase and slows down in the anaphase for anodized sealed films. At this time corrosive reactions gradually reach steady state. Open-circuit potential greatly waves for the rough sealed films. Potentiodynamic polarization curves of sealed films show that passive area is the longest for films sealed by sol which has the minimum corrosive current , the passivate current, anodic current and cathode current, but the maximum pitting potential and open-circuit potential. Corrosion parameters are the second for the film sealed by dichromate. Anodic reactions are strongly inhibited by sol sealing films in Cl- corrosive solution. Sol sealing films weaken cathode O2 depolarize reaction. Cl- ions erode anodized Al material on which covered with sol film and produce corrosion. The corrosion of sol-gel film goes through two periods: pitting induced phase and pitting corrosion period.
