Environment-enhanced creep, which we have called 'corrosion creep' was investigated in pure Mg, die-cast magnesium and aluminum alloys and stainless steel in various corrosive solutions in comparison to that in air. Creep behavior of metals depends very strong on processing and a kind of environment. The highest sensitivity to a corrosive medium during creep was observed for the alloy with a higher inhomogeneity of micro- and macrostructure (a higher intermetallics or another second phase contents, a stronger developed texture, etc.). Anodized Mg alloys reveal a significantly longer creep life in comparison with uncoated die-cast alloys. The significant plasticization of metals is observed in buffer solution, i.e., strong chemomechanical effect is found. This effect discovered by Gutman in 1967 is manifested in the increase of plasticity of a solid under the influence of (electro)chemical reactions.
