Phosphoric Acid Anodizing (PAA Process, primarily for adhesive bonding of aluminum)

This discussion is limited to single-lap specimens and shear strength only for simplification. In addition, clad aluminum bonded parts corroded in the clad layer, thus releasing the bond.

However, it is most desirable to prime parts as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of inadvertent contamination.

Start pulling them apart by hand careful of sharp edgesthen put a drop of astj on the joint. Of course, that was only the beginning: NOTE 3—The color change may be difficult or impossible to detect on surfaces that have been etched by marking ink, roughened by machining, sanding, deburring, etc.

Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. It is used as a surface preparation for bonding. Periodically check, clean, or replace? He sought a practical methodology that would yield the necessary data.

Specifically, little protruding oxide fingers rise right up out of the aluminum – I’m not sure that a smooth surface or a rough surface would have any difference – a clean and c3933 deoxidized surface will behave identically given the same electrolyte, current density, etc. Prior to engineering your line you may wish to also think about production flow logistics as Ray mentioned which are axtm for best results, as well as meeting most aerospace specs.

The main office, s3933, used to have one of the finest libraries going. Phosphoric acid anodizing is done with stainless steel cathodes. There are better, but cost a lot more. All information presented is for general reference and does not represent a professional opinion nor the policy of d933 author’s employer. Currently, Nadcap does not have a specific PAA spec, but one will be handed down soon after their quarterly meeting this month.


Standard Guides for Automotive and Aerospace Adhesives from ASTM

Immersion rinse tank s used for anodize rinse shall be used for anodize rinse only. The use of a Ultra Violet system has been mentioned as one possible cure? Already Subscribed to this document. Further, how could he verify supplier data found on a typical technical data sheet TDS in a manner that would be universally accepted as adhering no pun intended to good scientific and documentation principles without necessarily running every adhesives test known to the automotive world?

Phosphoric acid anodizing is usually requested by the aerospace industry. If you want a quick and dirty demonstration, make standard peel test specimens from candidate surface preps.

Small irregularities at points of electrical contact are acceptable. I have searched the web and cannot find much technical info. Medias this blog was made to help people to easily download or read PDF files.

These methods include, of course, the typical lap-shear D and D and peel tests D PAA is used to prepare the aluminum surface for acceptance of the primer before bonding. I don’t think this is possible, but I thought I should at least try to post the question. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

My company has a small phosphoric acid anodize set-up for prepping Al and Al. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Solutions used in this process are corrosive and toxic. It is not clear to me if Phosphoric Acid Anodizing is still patented or not. The colors most frequently seen are purple, yellow, blue, and green hues. I am skeptical-any truth to this? Current edition approved May 10, Chromate can withstand and in some cases mostly material dependent I have seen in cases it pass hours.


After all, he had unlimited time, but not unlimited money. Already Subscribed to this document. I know of two methods: The values given in parentheses are for information only.

My understanding is that some of Boeing’s competition does not use this process for adhesive bonding, but rather a variant of chromic acid anodizing.

This standard is not included in any packages. If Boeing’s BAC spec is still active, then it would be prudent to consider it’s use. I am looking for technical information on PAA phosphoric acid anodizing. I am trying out Phosphoric Acid anodizing for a new customer.

This guide describes one method on how to properly prepare aluminum surfaces can be obtained. Others tell me that PAA requires primer application within 3 hours of anodizing and near clean room surroundings to avoid subsequent damage.

Many factors, however, apply to shear modulus, tensile strength, and tensile modulus measured by small laboratory specimens in general. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Surely, since the original document was written, there have been advances in structural adhesive bonding.

To make more info available with less searching, we’ve combined together onto this page a number of previously separate threads about phosphoric acid anodizing.

Phosphoric acid anodizing per BAC5555 and ASTM D3933-98

This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. Rather than depending upon historical precedent within individual companies, ASTM standards can codify the results, rendering them universally accepted.

Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.
