Magnesium (Mg) alloys are receiving increasing attention due to their abundance, light weight, castability, formability, mechanical properties and corrosion performance. By selecting the appropriate combination of materials, coatings and surface modifications, their corrosion resistance can be greatly enhanced. The editor and contributors present a comprehensive guide to the effective prevention of corrosion in these important light metals.
The introductory section discusses alloying, inhibition and prevention strategies for magnesium alloys as well as corrosion and prevention principles. The middle parts review surface treatment and conversion, surface cleaning and pre-conditioning, surface processing and alloying, laser treatments, chemical conversion and electrochemical anodization to improve the corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys, varied plating techniques, cold spray coatings, gel, electroless electrophoresis coatings. The book concludes in part four with a selection of case studies investigating the application of preventative techniques for both automotive and medical applications.
