The results of anodic behavior of Zn5Al, Zn55Al alloys alloyed with Magnesium in the environment and their micro-structures are studied. A potentiodynamical research carried out by Zinc-Aluminum alloys, alloyed with Magnesium obtained a corrosion-resistant coating with optimum concentration of Magnesium about 0.005 - 0.1wt%. The rate of corrosion of these alloys is 2 - 2.5 times lower than Zn5Al, Zn55Al initial alloys. It is explained by the effect of modification on the structure of original alloys and they can be used as an anticorrosion coating for protecting corrosion of steel frames.
