Luxfer MEL Technologies unique technology is helping vehicle manufacturers to lower emissions and increase performance through lightweight materials. We produce lightweight magnesium alloys for structural and dynamic vehicle applications.

Our zirconia oxide and hydroxide technology formulations for gasoline TWC, Gasoline Particulate Filters (GPF), Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), Diesel Particulate Filers (DPF), passive NOx Absorbers (PNA), and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).

Lightweight extruded magnesium offers strength and durability, while being highly machinable and versatile for demanding engineering situations. From commercial automative markets to highly optimised motorsport applications, our products are highly customisable to required specifications.

Automotive catalysis

The field of Autocatalysis is very much legislation driven and this varies significantly dependent upon geographical location. This results in the need for advanced materials to meet the performance requirements, particularly after accelerated ageing cycles.


Luxfer MEL Technologies is a world leader in the development and supply of high quality extruded products.
