Effect of Pb and Sn Additions on the Ductility of Cast AZ61 Mg Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

AZ61 alloy is an important magnesium (Mg) alloy which can be rolled at elevated temperature. However, the insufficient ductility of as-extruded alloys limits their design and applications. Pb or Pb+Sn additions lead to a high ductility (~18% at room temperature) and good tensile strength (~250 MPa). This paper discusses the mechanism of property enhancement and the influence of Pb addition on the solidification process of AZ61 alloy.
