Electrophoretic deposition of alumina on stainless steel from non-aqueous suspension

Electrophoretic deposition of alumina on stainless steel has been investigated. The influence of different organic media and deposition parameters such as solid concentration, applied voltage and time of deposition on deposit yield has been evaluated. Maximum deposit yield was obtained for solvent media that imparts highest magnitude of surface charge on alumina in suspension. The deposit yield increased linearly with concentration of alumina powder in suspension, and applied voltage following Hamakers law. A similar linearity in yield was observed at short deposition times, but a deviation in linearity was observed at higher time of deposition, which is attributed to the shielding effect of the deposited layers and accumulation of ions at the electrode, and depletion of powder in the suspension with progress in deposition.
