The Effect of Microstructure on the Corrosion of Recycled Magnesium Alloys

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


One of the major causes of magnesium corrosion is the presence of impurities, inclusions and intermetallic phases in alloys. Corrosion measurements in NaCl Mg(OH)2 electrolyte were performed in order to understand the effect of impurities and intermetallic phases on the corrosion behavior of recycled magnesium alloys. The microstructure examinations were conducted using Scanning Electron Microscope. The recycling processes were based on the combination of flux and fluxes methods and deposition techniques.
