Articles & Magnesium News

Magnesium and magnesium alloys are often used for military application and instruments for defence. Here we can put mainly castings, powers and wrought products. Structural castings have been utilized in equipment where its low density offers significant advantages. They are used specially for armoured vehicle, intricate sand, in investment castings present in radar equipment, portable group equipment and Stingray torpedoes. The newest sand and investment casting alloy which combines high strength at temperature with excellent corrosion resistance. Anti tank ammunition rounds have been a major application for magnesium extruded bar.
Fine and atomized powers are widely used by the military industry in a range of flare and ordnance applications, notably decoy flares and illumination flares. The first one burn with white color and the intense heat of the pyrotechnic candle consumes the flare housing. Ground illumination flares are designed to descend by parachute and illuminate ground terrain and targets. Magnesium takes a big part of country and international protection. And its applications grow every day.


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.
