Magnesium strip, sheet are one of the most common types of magnesium mill-products. They are very workable — can be easily drilled, bent, cut, rolled, milled, pressed. Magnesium is not expensive and very lightweight material (volume weighth is 1.7 g/cm3). Cost of magnesium ingots currently amounts to 3 dollars per 1 kilogram. Magnesium possesses resistance in petrol, solutions of mineral oils, freon, kerosene. In alloy composition with other metals, magnesium differs with very high strength-to-density ratio and corrosion resistance.

Physical characteristics of Mg

Description Identification
Atomic (molal) weight mole/h 24.3
Oxidation rate 2
Density [g/cm3] 1.738
Melting point 650°С
Melting heat kJ/mole 9.2
Heat conductivity K [V/m*K] 158
Evaporation heat kJ/mole 131.8

Demerits

Difficulties that appear at melting, casting and hardening of alloy can relate to the demerits. Magnesium is easily oxidized. Magnesium fume can easily burst into flame.

Flat products

Magnesium sheets can have specified or multiple to specific length, which interval constitutes 500 mm. Magnesium sheets must be cut on all sides. At that, laminations and fins must not be present at edges. Magnesium sheet surface must not have oxide scales, flux slags, laminations, cracks, tears, lines of roughness. By material state, sheets are divided into two groups: annealed sheets and semi-hammer-hardened sheets.

Application

Such sheets are used in motor-vehicle engineering, especially at construction of sportive patterns. Magnesium sheets can significantly increase weight of vehicle construction without loosing of strength. This mill-product is also applied in serial automotive industry for manufacture of posts and protection of crankcase. There can be stamped hard wheel disks for prestige cars. Sheet and strip are used in air-craft industry: in helicopter and air-plane engineering. There can be also manufactured fairings, parts of airframes, stabilizers, chassis.

Magnesium plate

Magnesium plate is used by many modern industries, primarily in air-craft and motor-vehicle engineering. Pure magnesium is lightweight. But it is not very hard material. It assumes a strength in alloy with other metals. Against this background, the most successful is alloy of magnesium and aluminium. Plate made of magnesium is very workable.

Manufacture

Usually, magnesium plates are manufactured with a thickness of 12−50 mm. By width of 1000 mm, standard length constitutes1, 1,2, 1,6, 1,8, 2,0, 2,5, 3,0 m. There is possible die-cutting of plates with other sizes in accordance with customer’s needs.

Quality

Magnesium plate with a thickness of up to 32 mm must be cut in the ends and fens. Thicker plates are made with mill edges. Defects are acceptable at edges and fens. Plate surface undergoes additional anticorrosion processing.

Application

Usually, such plates are used along with other metals (most frequently with aluminium).They have high strength-to-density ration and softness. They are virtually indispensable in helicopter, airship and air-craft engineering: for manufacturing the parts of plugs and racks of chassis, housings, stabilizers, stiffeners and similar fragments.
