Corrosion behavior of high-pressure die cast creep resistant magnesium alloys MRI153M and AZ91D in 3% NaCl aqueous solution was studied by several electrochemical and non-electrochemical techniques. Values of corrosion rates were calculated by the Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), Linear Polarization Resistance (LPR), Tafel-slope Extrapolation and mass-loss measurements. All the methods showed that the corrosion of MRI153M alloy proceed at much lower rates than that of AZ91D. The electrochemical techniques provided the values of corrosion rates of 3-6 mm/year for MRI153M and 15-27 mm/year for AZ91D. Mass loss measurements provided considerably lower values of the corrosion rates: 0.57 mm/year for MRI153M and 0.79 mm/year for AZ91D.
