New alloys of the Mg-Zn-Ag system are studied. The capacity for precipitation hardening and mechanical properties of extruded Mg-Zn alloys are determined depending on the degree of their alloying with silver. The microstructure of the alloys is studied with the help of light and electron microscopes; the grain sizes are measured before and after the extrusion. The hardness and the mechanical properties of extruded alloys are determined after single and double aging.
