Articles & Magnesium News

During the last half century the application of magnesium and its alloys grew many times. The world significance of magnesium grew, too. This is due to numerous characteristics of the metal regarded to herein, which permit its use both as a structural element, and as a chemical addition to other metal alloys. The metal is lighter than aluminum and has bigger tensile strength than steel. That is the reason for its necessary metallurgy using.

Seeing widespread use of magnesium in structural applications is the collective dream of the industry and metallurgy, although not everyone shares this vision. Magnesium alloys were widely used in structural applications during World War II. Incredible physical, chemical and mechanical advantages of magnesium permit wide-spread applications in miscellaneous spheres of modern industry.

Today the magnesium alloys have a big part of world metallurgy and engineering. It's amazing how magnesium alloy parts can be produced at a cost comparable to steel castings, aluminum castings and mass-produced plastics.

Here you can read much information about magnesium in metallurgy - physical characteristics, history facts and explorers, magnesium alloys and many different applications of that metal.


What is magnesium?

Green vegetables such as spinach provide magnesium because the center of the chlorophyll molecule contains magnesium. Nuts (especially cashews and almonds), seeds, and some whole grains are also good sources of magnesium.

Notable features

Magnesium is a fairly strong, silvery-white, light-weight metal. It is protected by a thin layer of oxide which is fairly impermeable and hard to remove. Magnesium reacts with water at room temperature, though it reacts much more slowly (for example) than calcium.
