Biodegradation Behavior of Coated As-Extruded Mg–Sr Alloy in Simulated Body Fluid

As-extruded Mg–Sr alloy, a kind of promising biodegradable biomedical material, was coated using micro-arc oxidation and also using a phosphate conversion coating. The corrosion behaviors were investigated using Hanks’ solution. The corrosion of the as-extruded Mg–Sr alloy became more serious with increasing immersion time; that is, the corrosion pits became more numerous, larger and deeper. The micro-arc oxidation coating and the phosphate conversion coating were effective in improving the corrosion resistance of the as-extruded Mg–Sr alloy. The micro-arc oxidation coating was much more effective. Moreover, the as-extruded Mg–Sr alloy and the coated as-extruded Mg–Sr alloy exhibited lower corrosion rates than the as-cast Mg–Sr alloy and the corresponding coated as-cast Mg–Sr alloy, indicating that the corrosion properties of the coated samples are dependent on their substrates. The finer microstructure of the substrate of the as-extruded condition corroded much slower. The corrosion resistance of the coated Mg–Sr alloy depended on the coating itself and on the microstructure of the substrate.
