Abstract

The paper examines the mass transfer kinetics, structure, and properties of spark-deposited coatings on magnesium alloys. They are obtained using composite ceramic electrodes from the AlN–Zr(Ti)B2 and B6Si–CaB6 systems. It is revealed that the microhardness and corrosion resistance of the coatings increase in a 3% NaCl solution and the abrasive wear decreases as compared with uncoated magnesium alloy.
