The cutting edge of technology
Magnesium, like most pure metals, must be alloyed with other materials to obtain a higher strength-to-weight ratio. Magnesium is known for its strength and lightness. The possibilities of alloys are numerous, depending on the properties required. The common elements in alloys are aluminum, zinc, manganese and some other rare metals.
- The first letters indicate the alloying elements used in the largest quantity.
- Two or three numbers indicate the rounded percentage of these main alloying elements.
Alliance Magnesium relies on highly qualified personnel and state-of-the-art equipment. It will meet the requirements of all its customers by producing exactly according to their needs. Here are some examples of more common magnesium alloys.
Magnesium AM50A has good energy absorption, high ductility and strength when used in the automotive industry. This alloy is usually used in the construction of steering wheels, lock cases, steering columns, etc. This alloy is available in 8 kg, 12 kg and 23 kg ingots in various shapes.
Alloy AZ91D is the most commonly used magnesium die cast alloy. It is the strongest rated magnesium die cast alloy and makes up the bulk of current use. Thanks to its mechanical properties and high corrosion resistance, this alloy’s range of applications is becoming increasingly wider. It is most commonly used for casings, covers, brackets, chainsaw parts, portable tools and electronic parts. This product is available in 8 kg, 12 kg and 23 kg ingots in various shapes.
Magnesium AM60B alloy is commonly used for automotive safety parts. Its strength, ductility, energy absorption capacity and ease of casting make it an alloy with great qualities for industry. This alloy is generally considered for applications requiring ductile failure modes such as seat frames, dashboards, steering wheels, brackets, etc. This product is available in 8 kg, 12 kg and 23 kg ingots in various forms.
