The paper focuses on detection and structural-phase justification of the modes of combined electron-ion plasma treatment of commercially pure A7 grade aluminum carried out in a single vacuum cycle and enabling to enhance mechanical (microhardness) and tribological (wear resistance) properties of the material. Commercially pure A7 grade aluminum underwent combined surface treatment, including deposition of titanium coating by means of vacuum-arc technique and further mixing of the coating/substrate system by intense pulsed electron beam. The varied parameters were energy density of the electron beam (10, 15, 20) J/cm2 and the number of impact pulses (3-100); the thickness of titanium coating was 0.5 μm. Electron-ion plasma treatment of aluminum was carried out in a single vacuum cycle. Optical and scanning electron microscope investigations, measuring of microhardness and tribological tests allowed defining the modes when hardness and wear resistance of the modified surface layer increases manifold in comparison to the initial properties of commercially pure aluminum.
