Effect of Sn on Corrosion Resistance of Mg-6Al-1.2Y-0.9Nd Alloy
The effect of Sn addition on corrosion behavior of Mg-6Al-1.2Y-0.9Nd alloy in 3.5wt.% NaCl solution has been researched by static corrosion tests, corrosion morphologies observation, microstructure and corrosion scale analysis. The result shows that, with the content of Sn increasing, the corrosion rate decreases at first and then increases. When the addition of Sn is 1wt.%, the corrosion rate is the lowest and the corrosion resistance is improved obviously.
