MAGNESIUM AND MAGNESIUM ALLOYS are often thought of as rapidly corroding metals because of their active positions in both the electromotive force (EMF) series (Table 1) and the galvanic series for seawater (see Fig. 1 in the article “Evaluating Galvanic Corrosion” in this Volume). However, depending on the environment and certain design considerations, the corrosion of magnesium can be well within acceptable design limits. Knowledge of environmental factors that influence degradation, types of… CONTINUE READING
