Advantages of Working with Magnesium Alloy
With its specific gravity 1.74g/cc, magnesium is the lightest commonly used structural metal. The most used magnesium alloy for die castings is AZ91D. With excellent stiffness and strength-to-weight ratios, magnesium die casting alloys are very cost-effective in comparison to other engineered thermoplastic materials. Here are some of the advantages of working with a magnesium die castings:
- High electrical and thermal conductivity
- Withstands high operating temperatures
- Excellent dimensional accuracy and stability
- Outstanding EMI and RFI shielding properties
- Great thin wall capability
- High environmental corrosion resistance
- Unique finishing characteristics
- Full recyclability
AZ91D alloy has an excellent combination of mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and castability. Magnesium metal alloys have the best machinability of all commercially used metal alloys. For surface treatments, magnesium alloys can receive decorative chromate treatment, painting, plating, and phosphate coatings.
