Paper Title:
Influence of Sn Content on the Mechanical and Corrosion Behavior of AM60 Base Alloys
  Abstract

The effects of Sn addition on the cast microstructure, mechanical properties, and corrosion behavior were comprehensively investigated. Cast AM60 alloy mainly consisted of primary Mg matrix and Mg17Al12 phase, and the microstructure virtually remained unchanged by the Sn additions up to 2%. Most of added Sn solute atoms were observed to dissolve into the Mg17Al12 phase and only a few fine MgAlSn precipitates were found in the high Sn alloys. Tensile strength at both room and 175oC was rather deteriorated by increasing Sn content, however the creep strength was significantly enhanced by it. Polarization characteristics of cast AM60 based alloys were not remarkably affected by the Sn content.
