Processing Characteristic of the High-Strength Magnesium Alloy


Article Preview

Mg96Zn2Y2 is a high strength magnesium alloy material developed by Mr. Kawamura in Japan. The name of this alloy is called as 'Kumadai Goukin'. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the processing property of Mg96Zn2Y2 material. For this purpose, cylinder upsetting tests were performed. In addition, the marketing community of AZ31 magnesium alloy collates the information with the new material. We examined and compared the deformation resistance and ductility of the two materials. Furthermore, the dependence of deformation resistance and ductility of these materials to processing temperature and speed was evaluated [1],[2].
