A Novel Anti-Corrosion Coating for Aluminium Alloy


Article Preview

A novel environmental protective water based metallic coating was developed for aluminum alloys, which mainly contains metal flake, silicate and silane. The coating's properties were investigated by neutral salt spray test, micro-hardness testing, adhesion test and electrochemical technique etc. Meanwhile the coating's surface and microstructure was observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Furthermore, the film forming matter was examined by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) test. Results showed that an excellent adhesive, heat-resisting, protective coating for aluminum alloy could be achieved by this technique. An interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) was formed in the coating by means of cross linking reaction of organosilicone and inorganic silicate. In thesis, the film forming mechanism and protection of coating were also discussed.
