Extruded and Forging Magnesium
Luxfer MEL Technologies offers magnesium alloy technology which improves performance through high-strength, lightweight materials. Magnesium alloys are 33% less dense than aluminium – they can be used as a substitute material to increase performance even at elevated temperatures.
Luxfer MEL Technologies is able to provide highly customised engineering solutions to our markets and customers through a dedicated 2,750t hydraulic extrusion press. Our magnesium forging billet is derived from high integrity Direct Chill billet. Luxfer MEL Technologies forging billet has excellent formability characteristics which reduces rejects and lowers processing costs for operators.
Magnesium is the lightest structural material available, while being highly machinable, versatile and offering important properties such as vibration damping, corrosion resistance and EMI/RFI shielding.
