Plating Magnesium onto aluminium
Is it possible to coat aluminium with magnesium? If so, how would one go about it?

Hi, Tony. To my knowledge magnesium is far too active to electroplate from a conventional aqueous bath. There might possibly be a molten salt bath that you can plate magnesium from, but I think the melting point of aluminum might be an issue.
