Abstract : This investigation mainly targeted on study of hardness and tensile properties of Al 7075 with different metal coatings like Nickel, Zinc and cadmium. Coating of these metals on Al 7075 is successfully achieved by time dependent electroplating method for different thicknesses of 10, 15 and 20 Microns. These metal coated Al-7075 specimens were tested for hardness and tensile properties according to the ASTM standards. It's found that Nickel coated alloy shows excellent hardness and tensile properties compared to Zinc and Cadmium coated alloys. 20 μm Nickel coated alloy exhibits highest hardness number of 102 HRB and Maximum Tensile Strength of 603 MPa than Zinc and Cadmium coated alloy. The microstructural studies authenticated that the coating of Nickel, zinc and cadmium on Al 7075 is homogeneous. © 2017 Author(s).
