... Zinc also induces SCC susceptibility in magnesium alloys ( Ref 9.2 , 9.21 ), so it is not surprising that the aluminum- and zinc-bearing AZ alloys, which are the most commonly used magnesium alloys, have the greatest susceptibility to SCC. Alloys with higher aluminum content, such as AZ61, AZ80, and...
