Formation Behavior of Anodic Oxide Films on Al7075 Alloy in Sulfuric Acid Solution Moon, Sungmo; Yang, Cheolnam; Na, Sangjo;
The present work is concerned with the formation behavior of anodic oxide films on Al7075 alloy under a galvanostatic condition in 20 vol.% sulfuric acid solution. The formation behaviour of anodic oxide films was studied by the analyses of voltage-time curves and observations of colors, morphologies and thicknesses of anodic films with anodization time. Hardness of the anodic oxide films was also measured with anodization time and at different positions in the anodic films. Six different stages were observed with anodiziation time : barrier layer formation (stage I), pore formation (stage II), growth of porous films (stage III), abnormal rapid oxide growth (stage IV), growth of non-uniform oxide films (stage V) and breakdown of the thick oxide films under high anodic voltages (stage VI). Hardness of the anodic oxide films appeared to decrease with increasing anodization time and with the position towards the outer surface. This work provides useful information about the thickness, uniformity, imperfections and hardness distribution of the anodic oxide films formed on Al7075 alloy in sulfuric acid solution.
