The Compatibility of Magnesium Alloys with Automatic Transmission Fluids 940405

The compatibility of magnesium die casting alloys with commercial automatic transmission fluids was studied in laboratory tests. The effects of high temperature, presence of water, and galvanic coupling with steel were examined, using visual observation, weight change, Scanning Electron Microscope, and Scanning Auger Microprobe surface analysis. No significant corrosion of magnesium was detected under any of the test conditions.
