The mechanical properties and mechanoelectrochemical effect (the effect of mechanical deformation on the surface electrochemical reactions) were investigated for some Mg-based alloys supposing that aluminum alloying influences them. A simple method of testing mechanoelectrochemical behavior of metals was developed. Potentiostatic polarization measurements on stressed electrode were carried out in chloride electrolyte. The correlation between the mechanoelectrochemical behavior and strain hardening stages is observed during plastic deformation. Maximum mechanoelectrochemical effect is achieved under intense strain hardening in the initial portion of this stage. The experimental observations are explained theoretically.
