Abstract: Multilayered composite of Mg-2%Zn/Al-7075 was developed by accumulative roll bonding (ARB) of wrought Mg-2%Zn and aluminum 7075 alloy. The Mg-2%Zn/Al-7075 multilayered composite exhibited density of 2295 kg/m3 and an average grain size of 1 and 1.3 ?m in Mg-2%Zn and Al-7075 layers, respectively. A thorough microstructural characterization was performed on the composites by scanning electron microscope, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), transmission electron microscope and phase analysis by x-ray diffraction. In addition, mechanical properties were evaluated by microhardness and tensile tests. Corrosion behavior of the multilayered composite was examined using electrochemical polarization test. EBSD analysis showed the presence of ultrafine grains with high-angle grain boundaries. The composite exhibited a significant improvement in ultimate tensile strength (~1.82 times) and elongation (~1.5 times) as compared with Mg-2%Zn alloy, after four-pass ARB process. 2017, ASM International.
