Direct-to-metal UV-cured hybrid coating for the corrosion protection of aircraft aluminium alloy

Abstract : Finding eco-efficient and environmentally viable alternatives to chromate coatings represents a fundamental milestone in the aerospace industry. Here, we show a chromate-free approach to protective hybrid coatings on aluminium alloy (AA2024-T3) departing from photoinduced sol–gel and cationic polymerizations. Beginning with a film of n-alkyltrimethoxysilane and diepoxy monomer, we rely on photogenerated superacids to induce the single step formation of two inorganic and organic barrier networks. Such system combines the unique aspects of photopolymerization including fast reactions, temporal control, solvent-free composition and temperature independence. Used without chemical conversion coating or anodizing, some films have passed 2000h of salt spray testing.
