Corrosion of Magnesium Alloys

The use of magnesium alloys is increasing in a range of applications, and their popularity is growing wherever lightweight materials are needed. This book provides a comprehensive account of the corrosion of magnesium alloys. It covers not only the corrosion performances and mechanisms of Mg alloys in conventional environments, such as sodium chloride solutions, but also looks at their corrosion behaviours in special media, like engine coolants and simulated body fluids. Part one covers fundamentals such as the corrosion electrochemistry, activity and passivity of magnesium and its alloys. Part two then considers the metallurgical effect in relation to the corrosion of magnesium alloys, including the role of micro-structure and earth-rare elements, the corrosion behaviour of magnesium-based bulk metallic glasses, and the corrosion of innovative magnesium alloys. Part three goes on to describe environmental influences on the corrosion of magnesium alloys, such as atmospheric corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, creep and fatigue behaviour, and galvanic corrosion. Finally, part four is concerned with various means of protecting magnesium alloys against corrosion through the use of aluminium electrodeposition, conversion and electrophoretic coatings, and anodisation. With its distinguished editor and team of contributors, this book is an invaluable resource for metallurgists, engineers and designers working with magnesium and its alloys, as well as professionals in the aerospace and automotive industries.

Magnesium alloys with their unique physical and chemical properties are important candidates for many modern engineering applications. Their density, being the lowest of all structural metals, makes them the primary choice in global attempts aimed at reducing the weight of transportation vehicles. However, magnesium also creates challenges at certain stages of raw alloy melting, fabrication of net-shape components and their service. The first one is caused by very high affinity of magnesium to oxygen, which requires protective atmospheres increasing manufacturing

Classical magnesium alloys are a combination of aluminium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. Magnesium combined with lithium forms ultralight alloys that have many uses. Since it is a reasonable material, it offers great possibilities and is constantly tested at various angles of applications and properties. Magnesium, previously used for military purposes, seems to fit perfectly to the requirements of the currently prevailing technology. Low density with appropriate mechanical properties (strength, high operating temperature), good foundry properties (high castability and low shrinkage),

Anodization is one of the most important and effective surface pre-treatments for Mg alloys. This chapter systematically summarizes Mg alloy anodizing behavior, the compositions and microstructures of anodized films on Mg alloys and the anodization-influencing factors. Based on the anodizing voltage variation, gas evolution and sparking behavior in a typical anodizing process and the characteristic composition and microstructure of an anodized coating, a four-stage anodizing mechanism is postulated. Moreover, the corrosion performance of anodized Mg alloys is systematically reviewed and

Corrosion is a surface degradation process determined by an alloy’s surface state, composition and microstructure. This chapter presents an overview of surface processing and alloying techniques that can improve the corrosion resistance of Mg alloys. It is found that some surface engineering processes can significantly change the surface state, composition and microstructure of Mg alloys. For example, surface mechanical and chemical cleaning can effectively remove surface contaminations; burnishing can modify the surface layer’s microstructure including grain size and
