Abstract: From an environmental, safety and economic perspective water should be the solvent of choice for electrophoretic deposition under industrial circumstances. However, because of the electrolytic decomposition of water under the influence of direct current, the majority of EPD is carried out in non-aqueous solvents. In this work, experiments prove that deposits can be obtained from aqueous alumina suspensions while avoiding electrolysis of the medium by using unbalanced alternating current fields [1]. In addition…
