Materials and Processing Designs for High-Performance Magnesium Alloys
Materials and processing designs for advanced magnesium alloys with fine microstructures and superior properties were established by the combination of the repeated plastic working and the Mg2Si synthesis in solid-state. The grain size was less than 1 μm via RPW process due to its severe plastic working on raw powder. The hot extruded magnesium alloys produced in industries showed high ultimate tensile strength, e.g. 420~450MPa, when employing Mg-Zn-Al-Ca-RE (Rare Earth) alloy coarse powder, having 0.5~2 mm diameter, as input materials.
