This paper involves the study of fatigue life of coated aluminium alloy Al 7075-T651 that is heat-treated under 100oC soaked in castor oil for three days. The specimen after heat treatment is subjected to fatigue test using rotary bending machine for number of cycles to fail under cyclic load of 15kgf, 25Kgf, and 50kgf.The life of the specimen is found and compared with uncoated specimen and improved life in number of cycle is noticed. The crack propagation and its type is analysed using scanning electron microscope for knowing the point of fracture and its initiation to failure.
