There is a growing need for ultrahigh-strength wrought Mg alloys in automotive and aerospace industries.In this presentation, three series of ultrahigh strength Mg alloys developed in Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), China are introduced.
Mg-8.2Gd-3.8Y-1.0Zn-0.4Zr(wt%)alloyextrusion rods and rollingsheets with bothultra-highstrengthandsuperiorductility is developed by direct-chill casting, hot deformationand ageing treatment. The extrudedMg-8.2Gd-3.8Y-1.0Zn-0.4Zr(wt%)alloy after T5 treatment exhibits a tensile yield strength (TYS), an ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and an elongation to failure of 462MPa, 520 MPa and 10.2%, respectively, which is mainly attributed to the precipitation of fineβ′phases, andthe formation of dense nanostacking faults (SFs) and long period stacking ordered(LPSO) phase.The commercialization of the Mg-Gd-Y-Zn-Zr alloys is discussed.
A new ultrahigh-strength W phase (Mg3Y2Zn3) containing Mg-10.3Zn-6.4Y-0.4Zr- 0.5Ca (wt.%) alloy with medium RE content has been fabricated through conventional casting and indirect extrusion. The as-extruded alloy exhibits ultimate tensile strength of 466 MPa, tensile yield strength of 447 MPa and elongation to failure of 4.7%.Large number of nano W phase dynamically precipitated during extrusioncontributes to the ultrahigh strength of the as-extruded alloy.
Ultrahigh strength low-cost RE-free Mg-Al-Ca-Mnwrought alloys is also developed in HIT.The as-extruded AXM3404 alloy exhibits superior mechanical strength of TYS = 438 MPa and UTS = 457 MPa, which are mainly attributed to the fine DRXed grains pinned by fine fragmented second phases, and nano-scale dynamic precipitates.Mg-Al-Ca-Mn alloys are promising next generation low-cost ultrahigh-strength alloys without RE elements.
