Abstract

Applications of magnesium alloys as biodegradable orthopaedic implants are critically dependent on the mechanical integrity of the implant during service. In this study, the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of sand-cast Mg–Al–Zn alloy in modified-simulated body fluid was evaluated using the slow strain rate test method. The study suggests that the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of the sand-cast magnesium alloy is not substantial and this aspect should not be a concern for its implant applications.
