Abstract

Rare earths containing magnesium alloy, WE54, exhibited a marginally higher in-vitro degradation resistance than that of pure magnesium. Heat-treatment procedure had an influence on the degradation behaviour. However, comparing with AZ91 magnesium alloy the in-vitro degradation resistance of WE54 magnesium alloy was significantly lower, which suggests that the passivating capacity of rare earths is inferior to that of aluminium under in-vitro condition.
