Magnesium alloys are, collectively, the third most popular structural-metal, after steel and aluminum. Magnesium is also the lightest structural metal, weighing 75% less than steel and 33% less than aluminum. Most magnesium alloys exhibit excellent mechanical strength and stiffness, high dent and impact resistance, and damping qualities that promote quieter machine operation and maintain these properties at elevated temperatures. These characteristics make magnesium alloys ideal for forging lightweight, durable parts for a wide variety of structural and nonstructural applications.
As one of the most commonly-used structural-metals, magnesium (and magnesium alloys) are used in a broad array of applications, from electronics to power tools, and much more. As a structural-metal, magnesium alloys can be found in industrial machinery and materials handling equipment, among other uses.
