Study of Corrosion Resistance of Anodized Ti6Al4V in SBF


Article Preview

A layer of amorphous thick anodic oxide film was formed on Ti6Al4V substrate after anodization, and its thickness achieved 30-40µm. After immersion in SBF, anodized sample and substrate indicated different corrosion resistance. According to icorr, Rp and Ecorr, the concerned experimental results of potentiodynamic polarization curves, the anodic oxide film provided effective corrosion protection, which could be attributed to its relatively uniform, smooth, compact and intact microstructure. And the results of total immersion test also proved the protective role of the anodic film.
