Ceramic coatings were synthesized on pure Mg and binary Mg-7.1wt%Al alloy by plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) technique, and the effect of current ratio, C2/C1, ranging from 0.2 to 0.85 on their mechanical and electrochemical properties was investigated. As the C2/C1 ratio increased, the thickness of the coating layer increased, while surface roughness was almost unchanged. The hardness and wear resistance had a marked tendency to increase with increasing C2/C1 ratio and Mg-Al alloy showed higher hardness and wear resistance at all C2/C1 ratios compared to pure Mg. The weight loss of the pure Mg and Mg-Al alloy in 3.5%NaCl solution was reduced by coatings. However, it had no dependence on the C2/C1 ratio. The wear resistance of the coated Mg-Al alloy was better than that of the coated pure Mg.
