Abstract:

This report describes the results obtained in a study program to optimize surface preparation and application of organic coatings on non-metallic composites and to develop adhesion data on additional aluminum alloys following an optimized anodizing process. This study also describes development of adhesion data on additional aluminum alloys following an optimized chemical conversion coating processes. The Blister Test Method was utilized for generation of all adhesion data obtained in this study. The concluding segment of this study describes optimization of chemical conversion coating processing parameters to obtain reliable adhesion characteristics within practical processing tolerances and investigation of more rapid test methods of measuring resistance of aluminum alloys to corrosion.
