why a clean aluminium article is electrolysed with dilute sulphuric acid
Asked by | 19th Sep, 2013, 10:04: PM
Anodising is a process of forming a thick oxide layer of aluminium.
During anodising, a clean aluminium article is made the anode and is electrolysed with dilute sulphuric acid.
The oxygen gas evolved at the anode reacts with aluminium to make a thicker protective oxide layer. This aluminium oxide coat makes it resistant to further corrosion.
