Article Preview

Oxidation ceramic coating was directly synthesized on LY12 aluminium alloy by micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process in Na2SiO3 electrolyte solution with the Na2WO4-KOH-Na2EDTA addition. The corrosion resistance of the coating was tested using CS300P electrochemical corrosion workshop in 3.5% NaCl solution. Using the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD), the cross-section microstructure, the surface morphology and the phase structure of the micro-arc oxidation ceramic coating were analyzed. The results showed that the corrosion resistance of the micro-arc oxidation ceramic coating in 3.5% NaCl solution was enhanced remarkably, the corrosion velocity was obviously slowed down. The thickness of micro-arc oxidation ceramic coating was about 11μm. The final phases in the coating were found to be α-Al2O3 and γ-Al2O3. The mechanism of the oxidation ceramic coating formation was investigated too.
