Abstract: 

By the method of microarc oxidation of technically pure aluminum and aluminum doped with copper, vanadium and zinc (in an alkali silicate electrolyte at a current density of ~ 20 A/dm2), the resulting coating is about 100 μm thick. The nonmonotonic dependence of the phase composition and hardness on the doping level of aluminum (Al + Cu, Al + Zn, and Al + V systems) is revealed. It was established that the degree of influence of alloying elements on the transformation process of γ-Al2O3 -> α-Al2O is determined by their crystal-chemical characteristics (charge, ionic radius). Therefore, the mechanism of formation of the phase composition should be associated with the stabilization and destabilization of the γ-Al2O phase. The results indicate that Cu2+ cations contribute to destabilization of the γ-Al2O3 phase, while Zn2+ and V5+ cations stabilize the γ-Al2O3 phase (with a Zn and V content of more than 3 wt.%). A model is proposed for explaining the results obtained, which is based on the formation of the γ-Al2O phase in the initial period of time and the appearance of the γ-Al2O3 phase in subsequent periods (as a result of an increase in the power of microdischarges). It is shown that the highest hardness of coatings on aluminum alloys (about 16 GPa) is achieved with a copper content in the range of 3-4 wt.%.
