The mechano-chemical effect in a group of five die cast and extruded magnesium alloys has been investigated. Corrosion rates were determined as a function of both the processing conditions used to produce the alloys and the applied tensile strain by means of potentiodynamic polarisation measurements and immersion tests. These were conducted at 25°C in several borate buffer solutions containing NaCI, Mg(OH)2 or NHOH. It is shown that the mechano-chemical effect is strongly dependent on the aluminium content in the alloy.
