Abstract : Surface treatment of aluminum alloys based on wet chemical processes is subject to increasing regulations. The objective of the work described in this paper was to demonstrate the feasibility of applying a non-chemical technique to generate an aluminum oxide surface with adhesive bonding properties comparable to that generated with the traditional technique. This paper describes the use of ion beam enhanced deposition which meets the objective of this work.
