Abstract ZM6 magnesium alloy was prepared by solid recycling process. Effect of heat treatment on microstructure and mechanical properties of the alloy was investigated. Cold pressing was employed to prepare extrusion billets of ZM6 chips, then the billets were hot extruded at 773 K with an extrusion ratio of 25:1. During hot extrusion, the grains refined and the particles were broken. The peak-aging materials showed fine plate-shaped β′ precipitates. The ultimate tensile strength and elongation to failure of as-extruded rods was 232.2 MPa and 23%, respectively. After T5 and T6 heat-treatment, obvious improvement of the tensile strength was obtained because of dispersive particles or fine precipitates. The morphology of the fracture surfaces was examined by employing scanning electron microscope.
