Increasing the application fields of magnesium by ultraceramic®: Corrosion and wear protection by plasma electrolytical oxidation (PEO) of Mg alloys.

Due to its low density and high strength, magnesium has increasing potential in the lightweight area, especially as a material for structural components. To address the corrosion problem, which is the main issue with using Mg alloys in the automotive industry, as well as to address wear problems, a new technique that uses an asymmetric potential pulse waveform to form nanocrystalline PEO (plasma electrolytical oxidation) coatings on Mg substrates, especially on sheet Mg plates, is developed in this study.
