Luxfer MEL Technologies has spent the last 80 years developing alloys that resist corrosion for the automotive and aerospace industries.
The need for surface protection of magnesium alloys depends entirely on the conditions of service, and where these are known to be non-corrosive no protection may be necessary.
Magnesium is the lightest commercially available structural metal and is an ideal solution for weight critical applications in aerospace. It provides a lightweight alternative to Aluminium, Titanium, Steel and Carbon Fibre.
Magnesium is the lightest commercially available structural metal and exhibits excellent machinability. It has unique characteristics and requires just 55% of the power needed for machining aluminium.
SoluMag is a seamless extruded tube capable of higher-strength and greater resistance to deformation.
Zirconium Oxide (or Zirconia) products demonstrate good mechanical properties and stability at elevated temperatures.
Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2), also known as Zirconia, boasts the highest mechanical strength and fracture toughness compared to other fine grained ceramics.
Light weight components increase acceleration, reduce braking distance, reduce emissions, fuel consumption, increase payloads and range.
