What are the uses of magnesium alloys?

Main application areas:

(1) Aerospace industry, military industry, transportation, 3C field, etc. The characteristics of magnesium alloy can meet the requirements of light materials for noise absorption, shock absorption and radiation protection in aerospace and other high-tech fields, which can greatly improve the aerodynamic performance of aircraft and significantly reduce the structural weight.

Since the 1940s, magnesium alloys were first used in the aerospace sector.

(2) In the field of national defense industry, due to the impact resistance of magnesium and magnesium alloys, if magnesium alloys with comparable corrosion resistance to aluminum alloys can be developed, they will have broad application prospects in various military fields such as weapons. For example, magnesium powder for flares and high specific strength magnesium alloy cartridge holder materials for armor-piercing bullets.

And tactical aviation missile segments, aileron skins, siding and magnesium alloy tic-tac-beam, camera frame and casing for radar, satellite.

Weapon lightweight is the development trend of modern weapons. The use of magnesium alloy to replace some parts of existing weapons is becoming a research hotspot in many countries.

(3) Application of magnesium alloy in the automobile industry. The benefits of magnesium alloy automobile parts can be summarized as follows: low density, reduced vehicle weight, and indirectly reduced fuel consumption

The specific strength of magnesium is higher than that of aluminum alloy and steel, and the specific stiffness is close to that of aluminum alloy and steel. Magnesium has good castability and dimensional stability, easy processing, low reject rate.

Magnesium has higher damping coefficient and vibration reduction capacity than aluminum alloy.
