Nowadays, self-healing coatings display high abrasion resistance and bond strength. Application of these coatings are reckoned the most common and the most economic method for restoration and protection against corrosion by which metal structures durability is enhanced. The major role of a self-healing hybrid coating in corrosion inhibition is to supply materials for controlling types of corrosion. In this paper, titania–Benzotriazole nanostructured coating has been applied to substrate Al 7075 by using the sol–gel process and immersion method. The bonds existing in the hybrid coating, structure and morphology and coating corrosion behavior have been studied using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), GIXRD, atomic force microscopy (AFM), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and impedance electrochemical test, respectively. The obtained results are indicative of generating a homogeneous, uniform, crack-free titania–Benzotriazole nanostructured coating associated with excellent optimization of corrosion resistance at 2.8% Benzotriazole.
