||The kinetic aspects of the coating formation on the 2024 aluminium alloy at different time intervals of the microarc oxidation process(MAO) in an alkaline–silicate electrolyte under the AC current are investigated.Moreover themain reasons of modifications in theMAO coating properties (corrosion resistance,microhardness) and phase composition during the process are shown. Finally, non-destructive controlmethods ofMAO coating properties are worked out.
