Part of the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation book series


Formation by anodization of a thin porous layer of aluminum oxide (Al203) on an aluminum surface prior to bonding is required for adhesive joining of aluminum alloys [1,2]. The properties of this layer have major importance for joint strength [1,2].
