Microstructure Stability and Creep Strength in a Die-Cast AX 52 Magnesium Alloy


Superior creep strength of a heat resistant AX52 magnesium alloy is ascribed to the grain boundary eutectic Al2Ca phase covering the primary -Mg grains. The eutectic phase is stable in morphology at temperatures below 473K, while it collapses during long term exposure at temperatures higher than 473K. The microstructural change of the alloy during high… (More)
