Abstract: In order to study the influence of plastic deformation, annealing and aging treatment on pitting corrosion, the AZ80Mg alloy was subjected to equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) by route R at 325 C for up to 4 ECAP passes (P) and annealing conditions of 523 K, 623 K and 723 K followed by aging treatment at 6 h and 12 h. A microhardness and corrosion study was accomplished and microstructural evolution was recorded using optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). OM and EBSD analysis showed that a fine-grain microstructure with average grain sizes of 32.87 m and 6.35 m was achieved after 2P and 4P of ECAP, respectively. During annealing and aging treatment, the fine-grain Mg alloy revealed that the maximum microhardness and improved corrosion resistance were observed mainly due to redistribution of ?-secondary phases. Specifically, 12 h aged specimens at 523 K represented maximum microhardnesses of about 85 Hv and 87 Hv for ECAP-2P and -4P, respectively. Also, 12 h aging at 723 K appeared preferable for accomplishing enhanced corrosion properties. 2019, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.
