Nov 16.17 Magnesium and Corrosion: Free IMA Webinar
Magnesium’s lightweight characteristics (it is 35 percent less heavy than aluminum and 78 percent less than steel), its high strength-to-weight ratio, and its wide availability make this lightest of structural metals and its various alloys attractive for use in the mass production of components in cars, light trucks, in aerospace applications, biodegradable and bio-absorbable medical implants, consumer electronics and more.
But under certain conditions--e.g., environmental exposure, lack of effective coatings, variable welding and other joining techniques--magnesium is susceptible to corrosion. Finding cost-effective solutions for protecting magnesium alloys from corrosion has become paramount, particularly in automotive design and manufacture.

Now, the International Magnesium Association is scheduled to present a free webinar to IMA’s members and industry colleagues that addresses “Corrosion Protection of Magnesium Structures.”
Presenters will be Prof. Mikhail Zheludkevich, currently Head of Department of Corrosion and Surface Technology at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), Germany, and Dr. Carsten Blawert, a Senior Researcher in the same at department at that institution, which is part of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association (HGF). With its 18 research centres, 34.000 employees and an annual budget of approximately 2.2 billion Euros, the Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest research institution.
The presentation outline:
• Mechanisms of magnesium corrosion
• Pre-treatment of magnesium alloys
• Inorganic coatings for corrosion protection
• Polymer and hybrid coatings
• Corrosion inhibitors for magnesium
• New active protection approaches
• From corrosion protection towards control of magnesium degradation in non-structural applications
Webinar date and time: Wednesday, December 6, 2017
12:00 pm–1:00 pm US, Central Standard Time (GMT -6.00)
