Industry applications always fueled the needs of searching for superior materials which would satisfy the manufacturing criteria and improve the quality of final products. For these important reasons, the study of WE43 Magnesium alloy was proposed due to its low density compared with those of copper and aluminum alloys. Even though, this Magnesium alloy satisfied the most vital condition, low density, it still demonstrated some drawbacks of its mechanical behaviors such as hardness and toughness. However, its mechanical behaviors were modified by severe plastic deformation (SPD) technique that was carried out using ECAP and HPT procedures under controlled temperature and loading. The grain size of Magnesium alloy was reduced under high pressure as well as elevated temperature. When the grain size decreased, its mechanical behaviors were improved.
