Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
Corrosion Resistance of Aluminum Alloys
This article addresses the general effects of the composition, mechanical treatment, surface treatment, and processing on the corrosion resistance of aluminum and aluminum alloys. There are five major alloying elements: copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, and zinc, which significantly influence the properties of aluminum alloys. There are organic coatings or paints that provide a barrier between a corrosive environment and aluminum surface. Inorganic coatings, including claddings, and enhanced oxides, such as anodized films, Boehmite films, and conversion coatings also help in corrosion prevention. The article assists in the information on selection of fabrication operations, as they play an important role...
