What is oxidation on aluminum?

Aluminum oxide, Al2O3, forms a stable passive layer that protects aluminum from corrosion or further oxidation. This layer is about 4 nm thick and will provide corrosion protection as long as this oxide layer is stable. Aluminum is an amphoteric metal and can react with an acid as well as a base.
