ResumenExposure tests in natural atmospheres are an indispensable means for determining the behaviour and durability of metallic materials in the atmosphere. The corrosion behaviour of bare aluminium and anodised aluminium with three different coating thicknesses has been evaluated for two years' exposure in two natural atmospheres of very different corrosivities: one urban and the other marine. Several techniques have been used to evaluate changes in the specimens during exposure, but special attention is paid to the direct measurement of corrosion by gravimetry and its indirect estimation by the comparatively much more sensitive electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) technique. The results show that if no demands are placed on the conservation of its appearance, aluminium may be used without protection even in atmospheres of medium or high corrosivity. The anodising and sealing of aluminium alloys, above an ill-defined minimum thickness threshold, is an appropriate solution to prevent localised corrosion of aluminium and to conserve its appearance, even in aggressive atmospheres.
