Aluminium metal substrates were coated with silica, titania and silica-titania using the alkoxide precursors. The coating solutions were prepared by hydrolysis and condensation reactions of the alkoxide precursors. The metal substrates were pre-treated and coatings were prep-ared by dip coating the substrates in coating solutions of suitable consistency. They were withdrawn at a constant rate of I min/sec. The coated substrates were heat treated in the temperature range of350-500°C for 2 hrs. The corr-osion resistance of coated substrates was measured by potentio-dynamic polarization test using 5% I-12SO4 as well as 3.5% NaCI solutions and the results were compared with corrosion of bare metal. From the above study, it was observed that the corrosion rate of alum-inium metal was reduced by 86% for silica coatings, 25% for titania coatings and 77% for silicatitania coatings in 5% H2SO4 solutions. Similarly, the corresponding reduction of corrosion rates was 99%. 90% and 95% respectively in 3.5%NaCl solution. The corrosion resistance of silica coatings was very good compared to poor resistance of pure titania coatings. The addition of silica increases the corrosion resistance of titania appreciably.
