Applications of MagOxide method for cleaniness evaluation of Mg alloys 06/12/2011

A new method named “MagOxide” aiming at evaluating the MgO and Al-Mn-Fe intermetallics in magnesium alloys was developed by DSM’s Research Division. The newly developed method is based on wet chemistry procedure and is compatible with the Fast Neutron Activation analysis (FNAA) technique. The method was successfully implemented on a variety of primary and recycled Mg alloys. The present paper aims at presenting the systematic correlation results obtained by FNAA and “MagOxide”...
