Abstract:

An investigation was conducted to explore new methods of treating magnesium-steel couples after the two metals had been assembled and placed in electrical contact with each other. A phosphate anodizing treatment, prepared with this objective in mind, proved to be ineffective when applied to such couples. The treatment seemed to offer considerable corrosion resistance to magnesium alone when the operating conditions of the treatment were controlled within close limits.
