Effects of Ni, Cu, Si and Co on the Corrosion Properties of Permanent Mould Cast Medallions and Die Cast Plates of Magnesium Alloy AZ91 1999-01-0926

Permanent mould cast medallions and 3mm die cast test plates of 47 different AZ91 based alloys covering 3-129 ppm Ni, 7-2850 ppm Cu, 87-1740 ppm Si and 0-100 ppm Co were produced. Medallions and plates were subjected to 72 hours immersion in 5% NaCl solution at 25C and to the 10 day ASTM-B117 salt spray test. The results include: a) for AZ91, the corrosion rate values anticipated from salt spray testing of die cast test plates can be calculated from the results of immersion tests on permanent mould cast medallions; b) the effect of Co on corrosion of AZ91 is 35-75 times more detrimental than Cu and thus similar to that of Ni; and c) Si showed almost no effect on the corrosion rates in the alloys examined.
