The ultrafine grain structure was developed in spray-formed AZ31 magnesium alloy by optimizing delivery tube orifice diameter. A significant refinement of grain size similar to 1 mu m in ultrafine level was achieved by using 2.25 mm delivery tube orifice diameter. The tensile strength value was increased from 145 MPa of as-cast alloy to 250 MPa of spray-formed alloy, registering an enhancement of similar to 72%. On the other hand, elongation was increased from 6% to 13% using 2.25 mm orifice, registering more than onefold increase in elongation. Also, hardness enhancement of similar to 49% was observed in spray-formed AZ31 alloy compared to as-cast alloy. The fracture surface of spray-formed AZ31 Mg alloy evidences the mixed type of ductile and brittle fracture.
