Abstract

Zinc based alloys possess a number of attractive characteristics that make alloys potential candidates to use as implants for load bearing applications in the medical industry due to its good biocompatibility and biodegradability. In this current work, a number of binary Zn–Mg alloys were investigated in term of phase constitutions, microstructure, and mechanical properties. Magnesium was selected to tune mechanical properties of pure Zn. The microstructures of alloys were inspected by an optical metallographic microscope and SEM equipped with EDS analyser. Mechanical properties were tested using standard tensile testing instruments. While the Zn alloys with different wt% Mg are shown here, the influence of different content of Mg elements on mechanical properties also will present here.
