I am trying to run a magnesium alloy spec AZ-91D. I have tried the processes in Modern Electroplating to no avail. Is there a viable process to run Magnesium with good adhesion, or is it just a pipe dream?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

There are two methods to plate Mg.
One method uses a zincate similar to the ones used to plate Al.
The other method is the direct method that uses electroless nickel.
There is a recent paper on the direct method that was given at EN
99 which goes over this process sequence.
