    Pure Mg and Mg alloys generally exhibit only limited ductilities at ambient temperatures. Experiments were conducted to evaluate the potential for improving the mechanical properties of pure Mg and and Mg-0.9% Al alloy at room temperature by subjecting these materials to severe plastic deformation through the procedure of equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP). It is shown that ECAP may be applied successfully to these materials at elevated temperatures and this leads to grain refinement due to the occurrence of recrystallization during the pressing process and to significant improvements in the strength and ductility of these materials. Since these improvements are apparent after only a single pass through the ECAP die, it is concluded that the introduction of ECAP provides a simple and effective procedure for improving the ambient temperature mechanical properties of materials, such as hcp metals, where the measured ductilities are generally limited.
