Abstract : Corrosion of Clad 7075 aircraft alloy prompted the Air Force to sponsor an evaluation of differnt cladding compositions. The objective was to determine if these compositions offered better corrosion resistance than 7072, while providing adequate galvanic protection. Accelerated corrosion tests indicate that there are registered aluminum alloys that offer an improvement over 7072. Further work is needed to optimize a composition.
