Surface Modification Of Aluminum Alloys By Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation, Vahid Dehnavi
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) is a surface treatment for the production of ceramic oxide coatings with great properties, such as high wear and corrosion resistance, on metal substrates, particularly aluminum and magnesium alloys. Formation of PEO coatings involves complex processes and mechanisms that are difficult to study. Currently, the PEO process is in a transition phase from research to commercial application, with a primary focus on the corrosion and wear protection of light alloys, and has recently generated interest as a promising surface treatment for biomedical applications.
To justify the industrial application of PEO, a more systematic and in-depth study ...
