Additive Friction Stir (AFS), a novel solid-state metal deposition process, was used to deposit Mg alloys using atomized Elektron MAP21 fine powder and AMX602 coarse powder produced by spinning water atomization process (SWAP). Both materials were successfully deposited and contained no defects. The deposited samples show uniform microstructural distribution with fine grain structures. Microhardness and tensile results indicate that the AFS deposited Mg alloys have a good combination of strength and ductility, and show nearly isotropic properties. The present study demonstrates that AFS is an effective way to deposit Mg alloys with added powder as filler materials regardless their shape and size. In this presentation, the processing method, resulting microstructure, and comparison of AFS deposited Mg alloys will be discussed.
