The electrolytes were used various additions of NH4VO3, (NaPO3)6 and ZrO2 to the Na2SiO3 and NaOH solutions. The morphologies, composition and microstructure of MAO coatings were investigated by SEM、XRD、XPS and CSM TRIBOMETER. Corrosion resistance of the coatings was evaluated by Polarization curves.
Results showed that the oxide coatings formed in the electrolyte containing ammonium metavanadate appeared the color of yellow-green due to coating composition of V2O3, V2O5. The best compactness and corrosion resistance of MAO coatings was found in the elctrolyte with ammonium vanadate for charging ten mintes. The surface roughness of the coatings decreased, the hardness increased, and corrosion resistance slightly decreased as sodium hexametaphosphate added to ammonium vanadate electrolyte for micro-arc oxidation. ZrO2 addition to electrolytes improved the the properties of the coatings such as increasing surface hardness, deceasing roughness and slightly increasing coating thickness, but the corrosion resistance slightly decreased under the addition to ammonium vanadate electrolyte and slightly increased under the addition to sodium hexametaphosphate solution. However, there was little effect on the corrosion resistance of the coatings for ZrO2 additions.
