..., H2SO4 anodized, and coated with MIL-C-27725 integral fuel tank coating on the rib side. Scanning electron microscopy and microprobe analysis (both conventional energy-dispersive and Auger analyzers) showed that the anodic coating was applied over an improperly cleaned and contaminated surface...

... on the apparently clean fracture areas. This was done using the scanning Auger microscope on several portions of the various fractures. The Auger spectra obtained from one fracture, as received in the laboratory and after argon ion etching for 12 min (equal to about 120 nm), showed that the entire oxide thickness...
