Abstract:

Composite oxide films on bare 2024-T3 aluminum were produced by surface chemical treatments followed by anodic oxidation in a barrier forming electrolyte. The chemical characteristics of the composite film are studied. This type of information can be important in determining the overall corrosion resistance and durability of adhesively bonded structures.
