Environment-enhanced creep, which we have called 'corrosion creep', and high cycle corrosion fatigue were investigated in pure magnesium (Mg) and Mg alloys in different corrosive solutions in comparison to those in air. Extruded alloys, especially AZ80 and ZK60, show a significantly higher sensitivity to the action of corrosive solutions under stress in comparison with diecast alloys. The strong chemomechanical effect of increased plasticity of diecast and extruded alloys due to surface electrochemical reactions was found in borate buffer solution (pH. 9.3).
