Formatted Abstract/Summary
The corrosion behaviour of as-cast high-purity magnesium (HP Mg), as-cast and solution-heat-treated Mg-X alloys (X = 1% Mn, 5% Sn, 0.3% Ca, 5% Zn, 6% Al, 0.1% Zr, 0.3% Si, 0.1% Sr) was evaluated by PW (from weight loss), PAH (from evolved hydrogen volume) and Pi (from polarization curves) from immersion test in 3.5% NaCl solution saturated with Mg(OH)2. The corrosion rates of all the alloys were faster than that of HP Mg. There was a clear correlation between corrosion rates with type of alloying rather than the quantity of alloying. Although the solution heat treatment dissolved the second phase particles of the Mg-X alloys, there were some particles remaining in the microstructure. Therefore, the acceleration effect of the alloying elements can be interpreted as the mechanism of micro-galvanic corrosion caused by the particles.
