Colorization for fabricating aluminum pigments has broad application prospects in recent years. In this study, yellow-colored aluminum pigments with the double-layer structure Al@SiO2@PFMV were prepared using a sol-gel method. A crosslinked copolymeric dye (PFMV) was firstly synthesized by radical polymerization using vinyl triethoxysilane (VTES) and a small molecular dye (FGMAC) as monomers. Then, colored aluminum pigments were prepared by hydrolysis and condensation of the copolymers on the surface of aluminum pigments. SEM, AFM, FTIR, and XPS were used to characterize the surface morphology and chemical structure of the colored aluminum pigments. It was found that the colored aluminum pigments have a heterogeneous and smooth surface layer. The anticorrosion results showed that the colored aluminum pigments had better chemical stability with significantly improving corrosion resistance compared to raw aluminum pigments and Al@SiO2 with the single-layer coating. Chromatism analysis indicated that the lightness of Al@SiO2@PFMV pigments decreased slightly and the color changed from silver-gray to yellow. View Full-Text
