Effects of Y on microstructure of Mg-8Zn-4Al alloy was investigated by optical microscope (OM),X-ray diffractometry (XRD).The corrosion resistance behavior of Mg-8Zn-4Al- xY alloy immersed in 3.5% NaCl solution was tested by static weight loss and potentiodynamic polarization. The results showed that Mg-8Zn-4Al alloy with Y addition can refine grain size of the matrix and alter the distribution of the -Mg32(Al,Zn)49 phase from continuous network morphology transition to evenly distributed .The microstructure of Mg-8Zn-4Al-0.5Y alloy was finely refined, but no new phase was found.The new phase of Mg-8Zn-4Al-1.0Y alloy was Mg24Al5Zn2Y19. The corrosion potential value of Mg-8Zn-4Al alloy was increased with Y addition,while the corrosion current density was reduced. The corrosion resistance of Mg-8Zn-4Al alloy can be enhanced obviously with Y addition. The corrosion rate of Mg-8Zn-4Al-0.5Y alloy was the lowest compared with the other alloy in this test. Mg-8Zn-4Al-0.5Y alloy has the best corrosion resistance among of the four kinds alloy.
