Due to their low density and high specific strengths Mg-alloys provide an excellent potential to be used for light weight constructions. However, their equilibrium potential is very low resulting in relatively low corrosion resistance, especially in contact with other, more noble metals. In order to separate Mg from a corrosive environment hybrid billets with Al-alloy coating and AZ31-core were coextruded. Thus, the extrusion and coating of Mg-profiles can be carried out in a single production step, resulting in aluminum coated Mg-profiles. The influence of the extrusion ratio as well as of different die angles on the formation of diffusion layers at the interface was investigated. Furthermore the phases formed in the diffusion zones were analyzed using energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and synchrotron X-ray diffraction. Additionally, FE-simulations were conducted in order to reveal the material flow of core and shell material during the forming process and to identify differences in using varying die angles. Finally, the shear strength of the produced compounds was evaluated in push-out tests.
