  • creep resistant magnesium alloy


The objective of this alloy development has been to improve the corrosion resistance of AS21, without impairing the other properties of the alloy. This has been done by exchanging Mn with RE elements, based on the mutually limited solubility of Mn and RE in the AS-based alloys.
