SoluMag® ND43 Magnesium Alloy
Luxfer MEL Technologies SoluMag® alloy
Luxfer MEL Technologies is the world leader in the development and supply of highly functional magnesium alloys. SoluMag® ND43 is a premium lightweight, high strength non-dissolving, corrosion resistant magnesium alloy. Component designs in SoluMag® ND43 can be 20% to 30% lighter than a corresponding aluminium design. The properties of SoluMag® ND43 are well suited for its use as feedstock material from which to machine downhole components, particularly those associated with elevated temperature performance. This lightweight alloy is available as extruded rods, bars, tubes and profiles to produce components that have strength and ductility in demanding downhole environments.
