Mg-alloy has possibility to be used as biodegradabie biomateriai. The main probiem in application of this material is high degradation rate. The aim of this research is to study the mechanical, morphology and the degradation properties of Mg-alloy biodegradable by variation of sintering temperature of 500 °C, 550 °C, and 600 °C. Morphology was investigated using SEM-EDX. Phase identification was carried out by XRD and mechanical qualities test was measured by compressive and hardness test. Degradation rate test was assessed by weight loss test. The outcomes show that Mg-Zn-Cu sample with sintering temperature 600 °C is the optimum result. The compressive strength is 175,14 MPa, the hardness value is 410,59 MPa, and degradation rate is 8,57 cm/year.
