Usable Properties of Magnesium Alloy ZK60A by Plastic Deformation

Open access


The object of this study was to develop parameters of plastic deformation process of magnesium alloy - ZK60A. The tests have showed that for this alloy it is possible to use the temperature of the plastic deformation process ranging from 350°C to 450°C. Samples were characterized by mechanical properties and structure in different heat treatment tempers. This magnesium alloy obtained in the T5 temper higher mechanical properties then T6 temper. The paper also presents research results of investigation of conversion coating on ZK60A magnesium alloy by anodic oxidation method in non-chromium solutions. It was found that the coating produced in non-chromium solutions show considerable increase of corrosion resistance of tested alloy.
