Dissolving and Non-Dissolving Magnesium Alloys for the Oil and Gas Industry
Luxfer MEL Technologies is the world leader in the development and supply of highly functional dissolving and non-dissolving magnesium alloys. The combination of strength and corrosion properties of these alloys was developed based on Luxfer’s extensive knowledge on how these materials function in severe applications.
The SoluMag® Platform
Our patented SoluMag® technology provides the platform with dissolving and non-dissolving alloys to support applications where strength properties and dissolution rates are vital.
Our SoluMag® magnesium alloys are lightweight and can be used to produce frac balls that have the strength required in demanding environments to hold the frac during staging operations. SoluMag® alloys are designed with a controlled corrosion rate that will effectively dissolve in a known time.
Tube and Bar
Our SoluMag® alloys are robust and can be used to produce components for downhole equipment (such as frac plugs) that have the strength required in demanding environments to perform as designed for oil field operations. SoluMag® alloys are designed with controlled corrosion rates as well as with tailored mechanical properties for specific strength and ductility requirements.
Alloys across the dissolving and non-dissolving spectrum to fit your needs for strength, ductility, and dissolution requirements.
