Abstract

A comparison of corrosion resistance of die-cast and semi-solid cast AZ91, AM60 and AM50 magnesium alloys was performed in different corrosive media by measurement of the open circuit potential, potentiodynamic scans and weight loss tests. Before testing, a heat treatment was carried out onto semi-solid cast alloys. Electrochemical measurements have shown that the semisolid cast alloys have a different corrosion rate compared to the die-cast ones. The results could be correlated to the different microstructures of the samples produced by the different processes.
