The electrochemical anodic treatment is one of the effective surface modification methods, and the pulse voltage anodic method of micro-arc oxidation process is used in this paper. The main parameters of pulse anodic process used in this work include voltage, frequency, and duty ratio. The electrolytic solution of anodic process contains fluorine and silicon ions. From SEM observation, the pore size of anodic coating surface prepared at higher frequency and lower duty ratio is smaller and the more narrow pore size distribution. The diameter of the pore is approximately 0.5 μm. From electrochemical polarization analysis in 3.5wt% NaCl, the corrosion resistance of anodic coating prepared at higher frequency and lower duty ratio is better than the corrosion resistance of anodic coating prepared at lower frequency and higher duty ratio. For the best result in this study, say anodic coating prepared at higher frequency and lower duty, the corrosion potential can shift toward noble potential by 0.25V, and corrosion current density is decreased by 4 orders, and passive region can reach as high as 1V. From salt spray test, the time of spray salt test for the sample of anodic coating can be reached over than 200 hours. Advisor Committee Mu-Rong Yang - advisor
