Magnesium alloys die casting is very popularly used for automotive, home appliances, transportation, etc. since magnesium alloys perform excellent mechanical properties and casting productivity. It is much competitive than aluminum and zinc die casting. The most common material of magnesium alloy die casting are Mg-Al base and Mg-Al-Zn base alloys.
ADVANTAGES OF MAGNESIUM ALLOY DIE CASTING:
The best strength and stiffness of any commonly used structural metal.
The lightest of all structural metals
Excellent dimensional stability as well as high impact and dent resistance.
God conductivity, electrical, and thermal property
Cost-effective compared with many engineering materials
Good environmental corrosion resistance
Consistent and predictable shrink rates mean minimal distortion or casting stress
