The present work is dedicated to a study of the corrosion resistance of AZ91D (91% Mg) alloy in wet environments.

Abstract

The present work is dedicated to a study of the corrosion resistance of AZ91D (91% Mg) alloy in wet environments. Three industrial alloys obtained by die-casting or sand casting were subjected to salt spray corrosion tests (ASTM-B117 standard) and immersion tests. Weight loss kinetic curves were measured. Surface analysis was performed by X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPS). After corrosion the sand cast alloy presents a surface mainly enriched in hydroxides and carbonates while the die-cast alloy presents a surface enriched also in mixed Mg-Al oxides. The quantitative analysis of the rate Mg/Al shows an enrichment in aluminium for the die-cast alloys in comparison to the sand cast alloy. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
