Abstract

The effects of ion implantation treatments on corrosion of 2014 and 1100 aluminum in saline media were investigated. Implanted constituents were N, Si, Ti, and Cr. Techniques included salt spray testing, electrochemical studies, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, and profilometry. The principal conclusion was that ion implantation of Cr is of potential practical benefit for corrosion inhibition of 2014 Al in salt environments.
