... occupies the highest anodic position on the galvanic series, and as such, there is always the strong potential for corrosion. A severely corroded magnesium part is shown in Fig. 3.5 . The impurity elements nickel, iron, and copper must be held to low levels to minimize corrosion. The effect of iron on the...
