Aluminum alloys are widely used as lightweight materials in the transportation industry. For applications in aggressive wear and corrosive environments, proper surface treatment and protection of aluminum alloys are required. Electrolytic plasma processing is a relatively new surface coating technology that offers an environmentally friendly and cost effective solution for the surface protection of lightweight materials. In this presentation, the effect of electrolyte chemistry and various processing parameters on the microstructure, phase constituents, and the properties of the surface coating of aluminum alloys is discussed.
