Electrochemical noise generation during staining of 6061 aluminium alloy exposed to 60 to 100% RH at 323 K has been measured. The noise power values (V2) were obtained from the auto correlation of voltage time data. On exposure of aluminium alloy to 80 to 100% RH, considerable staining have been observed. During staining the noise power values were found to increase from 10-6 (V2) to 10-4 (V2) and a considerable weight gain was also observed. However, on exposure of aluminium alloy to 60% RH no staining was observed and the noise power value remained around 10-8 (V2). After passivation treatment of aluminium alloy in 50% HNO3 or with chromate treatment the noise power values remained at a low level of 10-8 (V2) till the protective power of the coating remained unaffected
