This patent describes supercorroding magnesium alloys that operate like galvanic cells and react rapidly and predictably with seawater to produce heat and hydrogen gas. The alloys are formed by a mechanical process that bonds magnesium and noble metal powder particles together in a strong electrical and mechanical bond. The alloy powders can be compacted and sintered to form barstock, etc., suitable for making self-destructing corroding links.
