Corrosion Tests on Magnesium

  1. Feb 9, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    So a little background. Im currently trying to characterize corrosion rates of AZ31B Magnesium [Mg-3%Al-1%Zn] which would be used as an implant within the coronary artery.

    Currently I'm running a static test of the magnesium in 0.9% NaCl(saline) in an incubator @37C.

    Im currently looking for suggestions about other experiments that I can conduct to further characterize corrosion, and what added benefit those experiments will give me.

    I was thinking about an electrochemical test?

    Any suggestions?
