Paper Title:
Effect of Strontium on Mechanical Properties and Corrosion Resistance of AZ91D
  Abstract

With adding 2% strontium in AZ91D, the ultimate tensile strength and the elongation increased by 10.3% and 55.3%, respectively. This is mainly caused by the refinement of the β phase and the formation of Al4Sr strengthening phase. Furthermore, with adding 2% strontium in AZ91D alloy, the weight loss corrosion rate in 5wt.% NaCl solution decreases to 0.048 mg·cm-2·d-1, which was 33.8 % of the AZ91D corrosion rate. Therefore, the mechanical properties and corrosion resistance of AZ91D could be improved by the addition of 2% strontium, which is due to the refinement of Mg17Al12 phase and the formation of Al4Sr phase.
