Paper Title:
Surface Morphologies of Sealed Film on Anodized Al Alloy
  Abstract

Surface morphologies of sealed films on anodized aluminum alloy extraordinarily affect on their corrosion resistance. Two-dimensional surface morphologies and three-dimensional surface morphologies of sol sealing, sodium dichromate sealing, boiling water sealing and unsealed films were obtained by OLS3100 laser scanning confocal microscope (LSCM). The three-dimensional surface morphologies show that the amounts of pores are greatly reduced when anodized aluminum 2024 are sealed by these methods. Surface roughness of sealed anodized aluminum 2024 films is increased comparing with the unsealed films, especially the boiling water sealing film. The results of two-dimensional surface morphologies show that unsealed films have plenty of spherical particles; there are raised blocks on sol film; there are much round or chrysalis cavities inside sodium dichromate sealing and boiling water sealing film. Especially there are the most and the deepest cavities with the largest diameter on the boiling water sealing film.
