Abstract. This chapter covers cast and wrought magnesium alloys and describes current trends in their commercial applications. Solid solubilities of the commonly used alloying elements are considered with respect to their effects on melting and casting with special reference to the beneficial grain refinement that can result from the addition of small amounts of zirconium.

Jul 21,  · Magnesium alloys have received an increasing interest in the past 12 years for potential applications in the automotive, aircraft, aerospace, and electronic industries. Many of these alloys are strong because of solid-state precipitates that are produced by an age-hardening process.

Although some strength improvements of existing magnesium alloys have been made and some novel alloys with Cited by: The two magnesium-zinc-zirconium alloys originally developed, ZK51A and ZK61A, exhibit high mechanical properties, but suffer from hot-shortness cracking and are nonweldable.

For normal, fairly moderate temperature applications (up to °C), the two alloys ZE41A and EZ33A are finding the greatest use. They are very castable and can be used to. (b) Zirconium grain-refined alloys. Zirconium additions provide an extremely efficient method of grain refining magnesium alloys, Fig.

A prerequisite is that elements like aluminum and manganese, which effectively suppress the liquid solubility of zirconium in magnesium, are not present.

Magnesium-zirconium is one of numerous metallic alloys manufactured by American Elements. Available alloy forms include sheets and plates, discs, foils, rods, tubes, powders, and other shapes. American Elements can produce magnesium-zirconium in various standard ratios of Mg:Zr; custom alloy compositions are also available.

Its maximum solid solubility in aluminum is %, but the magnesium content in. Generally, Mg alloys contain one or two primary alloying elements. The Mg alloys are mainly based on three binary systems: Mg-Al, Mg-Zn and Mg-Zr.

The magnesium alloys without zirconium show a strong tendency for grain growth. Non-alloy magnesium can undergo cold deformation up to %. May 04,  · Background: Magnesium casting alloys can conveniently be divided into two basic groups zirconium-free and magnesium-zirconium alloys.

The first commercially available group of zirconium-free alloys were Mg-Al-Zn based, the most widely used alloy being AZ91 (Mg 9%Al 1 %Zn %Mn).

If the major alloying elements are assumed to leave unchanged the free energy of Al 3Zr (D0 23 or L1 2), it is possible to compute their effect on the metastable zirconium solubility limit (see Table 1).

As can be seen, the more positive the solute-zirconium interaction, the lower the zirconium solubility limit. Alloys containing Mg % Nd % Zn have the following precipitation sequence Solid solution → low temperature reaction → plates γ”││ () → rods on γ () in & The low temperature reaction has not been elucidated but it occurs with an activation energy approximating to that of vacancy migration in magnesium.

The Effects of Forging on the Microstructure and Tensile Properties of Magnesium Alloys AZ31 and ZK60 David Poerschke asymmetry of products is large compared to other magnesium alloys.

Zinc‐zirconium alloys allow a wider Two alloys, AZ31B and ZK60A, were selected for forging trials based on favorable results in trials. This kind of corrosion is called galvanic corrosion, or two-metal corrosion. Magnesium and its alloys are highly susceptible to galvanic corrosion, because magnesium has the lowest standard potential of all the engineering metals as illustrated in Table 2 [].

Galvanic corrosion can also occur between two different by: Light Alloys: From Traditional Alloys to Nanocrystals, Fifth Edition, covers the materials science, properties, manufacturing processes, and applications of key engineering metals in a single accessible use of these metals is now more widespread than ever, with routine use in motor vehicles and aircraft, this book includes materials characteristics and applications, heat treatment.

Magnesium Aluminum Zirconium Oxide is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, Commercially, magnesium is primarily used in the creation of strong and lightweight aluminum-magnesium alloys, which have numerous advantages in industrial applications.

The name "Magnesium" originates from a Greek district in Thessaly called. Introduction. Magnesium is the sixth most abundant element on the Earth’s surface, with virtually inexhaustible supplies in the oceans.
