Summary

The principal drawback of magnesium as a structural material, besides its relatively low corrosion resistance, is poor stress relaxation characteristics [1], which limit Mg alloys application in automotive and aerospace industry.

The present paper deals with the corrosion stress relaxation behavior of pure Mg and die-cast Mg alloys in 3.5% NaCl (pH ≈ 5) and 0.1N Na2 B4 O7 solution with a stable pH 9.3.
