The effect of calcium (0.2 - 0.5 wt.%) on the resistance of a liquid and solid magnesium alloy to oxidation is investigated. It is shown that calcium may be used as a microalloying additive raising the corrosion resistance of magnesium alloys not only at a high temperature but also at the operating temperature of parts produced from them for both cast and heat treated conditions.
