Title: DEVELOPMENT OF A CORROSION RESISTANT MAGNESIUM ALLOY. PART I. DEVELOPMENT OF MAGNESIUM ALLOYS FOR BETTER CORROSION RESISTANCE. Period covered May 1955 to September 1956

Abstract

A novel way for finding alloys of Mg with better corrosion resistance has been evolved. This scheme relies upon alloying Mg with elements which, owing their lower surface tension, are expected to concentrate on the surface and thus alter the corrosion behavior. From a number of elements having a lower surface tension than Mg the elements: Hg, Pb, Ge, In, Bi, Sn, Cd, and Ca have been added to it to form very pure, dilute, binary alloys. Since thls was a feaslbllity study, insufficient data were obtained to allow a statistical analysis of results. The preliminary results obtained in general, however, indicate that Mg alloys containing Sn, Sb, Ge, Cd, and In compare favorably with pure Mg in the QQ-M-151A Salt Spray Test. (auth)
