SoluMag® Freshwater Magnesium Alloy

Luxfer MEL Technologies SoluMag® Freshwater alloy

Luxfer MEL Technologies is the world leader in the development and supply of highly functional magnesium alloys. SoluMag® Freshwater is specifically designed to corrode in very low chloride environments. This lightweight alloy is available as balls, extruded rods, bars, tubes and profiles to produce components that require strength and ductility in demanding environments as well as a controlled corrosion rate that will effectively dissolve the component in a known time. SoluMag® Freshwater offers significant advantages over other corrodable materials in that it retains super-corroding properties in conditions where other dissolvables would not function.
