Anodic Oxidation of Aluminium and Its Alloys focuses on the basic principles of anodic oxidation, choice of materials, pretreatment, design, properties of the anodic film, testing, and maintenance. Organized into 16 chapters, this book begins with the principles of anodizing; applications of anodized aluminum; factors influencing the choice of grade of aluminum for anodizing; and factors influencing the choice of anodizing process. Subsequent chapters explain designing for anodizing; anodizing equipment; jigging (racking) methods for anodizing; chemical treatment processes before anodizing; and the anodizing process. The coloring, sealing, and stripping of the anodic coating; testing anodized aluminum; properties of anodized aluminum; maintenance of anodized aluminum; and effluent treatment for anodizing plants are also described. This text will be useful to students, technicians, product designers, architects, and engineers in the aluminum industry.

High Temperature Brazing in Controlled Atmospheres provides a discussion regarding the fundamentals, applications, and the potential of the brazing process. Comprised of eight chapters, the book covers several topics concerning the metallurgical process in brazing. Chapter 1 discusses the general bonding techniques, while Chapter 2 talks about the factors that affect the design of components to be joined by brazing and the theoretical aspects of the process that will influence design. Chapter 3 provides advices about the availability and properties of filler metals used in brazing, while Chapter 4 discusses furnaces. Chapter 5 tackles the atmospheric factors to consider in brazing, and Chapter 6 covers the brazing process itself. Chapter 7 talks about the applications of brazing in various settings, and Chapter 8 deals with quality control. The book will be of great use for technicians, designers, and engineering students or any other professionals whose work involves the brazing process.

Principles of Metal Surface Treatment and Protection deals with the principles of metal surface treatment and protection. Topics covered range from electrodeposition and hot dip coating to diffusion and non-metallic coatings, as well as oxide and conversion coatings. The theory of corrosion protection is also discussed. Comprised of eight chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the corrosion of metals and the scope of protection against corrosion, followed by a detailed treatment of electrodeposition. The discussion then turns to the principles of hot dipping as a coating method; the formation of a diffusion coating; and the role of a non-metallic coating in corrosion protection. Subsequent chapters focus on the protection of oxide films against corrosion by means of anodizing, phosphatizing, and the use of tin free steel; testing and selection of a particular coating for corrosion resistance applications; and the theory of corrosion protection. This book is intended for metal-finishing scientists and students of metallurgy and metal finishing.
