Wrought magnesium alloys are of interest for lightweight structural applications as a result of their more homogenous microstructures and improved mechanical properties compared to cast components. Extrusion as a shaping technology offers the possibility to produce a wide variety of magnesium alloy profiles. In this contribution, we describe the role of microstructure on the mechanical properties of a number of extruded magnesium alloys with particular emphasis on grain size and composition effects on the tensile/compression deformation behavior.
