Additive manufacturing allows for the productions of a small number of parts, especially those that are no longer in production, at less cost and waste than traditional manufacturing methods. However, processing parameters that create lack of fusion defects can lead to the concentration of mechanical stresses and corrosive ions. In order to utilize AM parts in long-term applications, the degradation of the mechanical properties of AlSi10Mg with these types of defects must be determined, especially in various corrosive environments. The research presented here will compare the mechanical and physical degradation of parts produced using optimal parameters with parts with defects caused by processing parameters after exposure to three corrosive environments, including saltwater immersion, salt-fog, and acidic salt-fog.
