Microstructure and Creep Properties of AJ62 and AE44 Die-Casting Magnesium Alloys
Microstructure and tensile creep behaviour of the die-cast AE44 and AJ62 magnesium alloys has been studied at temperatures between 175°C and 200°C and at stresses in the range from 60 to 75 MPa. At the 175°C the AJ62 and AE44 alloys exhibit good creep resistance after 120h creep deformation. At 200°C the AE44 alloy shows still good creep resistance, whereas in the case of AJ62 alloy the rapid decreasing of creep resistance has been observed. TEM observations reveal dislocations cell structure in AE44 alloy after creep test. In AJ62 alloy subgrain formation and decreasing the dislocation density have been observed.
