Abstract
Dense aluminum and aluminum alloy coatings are needed for corrosion protection of high strength steel, aluminum and other materials. The major objective of this work is to develop and demonstrate an electroless aluminum deposition process using organic solvents and room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) for coating of steel and other metallic components for corrosion resistance. UES will be working with University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne (UIUC) in this project. The work will involve sample preparation, solution preparation, studies of coating properties as a function of deposition parameters, and detailed characterizations of aluminum coating.
