In this study, corrosion behaviour of β-Mg17Al12 phase was studied as comparing pure magnesium. The corrosion tests were carried out by immersion tests and potentiodynamic polarisation measurements in 3.5% NaCl solution. Compared to pure magnesium, β-Mg17Al12 phase has 2.7 times and 1.8 times lower corrosion resistance according the potentiodynamic polarization and immersion test results, respectively. Hardness test was also showed that β -Mg17Al12 phase was 3.4 times harder than pure magnesium.
