Forged Magnesium Alloys

Luxfer MEL Technologies unique range of forged magnesium alloys enable; lighter, stronger, safer and higher performance designs.

Our DC billet has excellent formability characteristics which reduces, rejects and lowers processing costs for operators. DC cast alloys is supplied in the homogenised condition with a high quality machined surface suitable for forging.

Luxfer MEL Technologies is one of the only producers in the world manufacturing high quality magnesium alloys in large volumes.

Our high integrity billet exceeds the automotive industry standard for corrosion resistance, toughness, ductility and also strength.

Magnesium is 30% lighter than aluminium significantly reduces the mass of structural components in high performance applications.

We provide technical advice on forging magnesium alloys, forged magnesium wheels, machining and processing magnesium materials, contact us today to discuss your application.
