Potentiodynamic polarisation and impedance measurements are used to examine the corrosion aspects of some Mg-based alloys, which were previously stressed in order to established the effect of mechanical deformation on surface electrochemical reactions. A first approach was made for the unstressed alloys. The electrochemical tests were carried out in a sodium borate buffer solution.
