AbstractPolypyrrole coating was successfully deposited on anodized 2024 unclad aluminum alloy showing that the presence of the anodic film is the key factor to ensure better adhesion to the polymer coating. Corrosion resistance of the conductive polymer layers grown for three and five cycles were evaluated in a 3 wt.% NaCl solution using polarization curves and impedance spectroscopy. It was found that the thermally treated polymer coating with higher thickness (five cycles) exhibited the best corrosion performance. This best coating shifts the corrosion potential towards nobler values, about 650 mV, and the exchange current density decreases two orders of magnitude regarding the anodic layer. The partial reduction of the structure of the polymer promoted by the thermal treatment plays a key role in the corrosion resistance of the coating allowing to the thermally treated polymer layer to act as a physical barrier against corrosion. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
