Make a Difference with Magnesium

  • Very light weight: Magnesium is 75% lighter than steel and 33% lighter than aluminum;
  • Best strength to weight ratio of any structural metal;
  • Thin-walled sections: sand casting = 0.080’’ (2 mm);
  • Mechanical properties optimized through heat treatment and grain refinement during melting;
  • Excellent machinability ;
  • Easy welding;
  • Excellent dimensional stability;
  • Good damping capacity and low inertia ;
  • Surface treatment and paint possible;
  • Recyclable;
  • Radio-frequency shielding, non-magnetic, good thermal conductivity.

Typical Applications of Magnesium

  • Automotive parts: prototyping, transmission housings, steering columns bracket, instrument panels, brackets, wheel hubs, etc.
  • Airplane and helicopter parts: gearboxes, etc.
  • Computer components, portable casings;
  • Bicycle and motorcycle parts;
  • Seat frames;
  • Housings for industrial and military equipment;
  • Etc.
