Magnesium Applications

Magnesium alloys are in use around the world in a variety of different applications. It is a preferred material when looking for weight reduction without compromising overall strength. The vibration damping capacity is also beneficial in applications in which the internal forces of high-speed components must be reduced.

The most common applications are:

  • Aircraft and missile components
  • Aircraft engine mounts, control hinges, fuel tanks, wings
  • Automotive wheels, housings, transmission cases, engine blocks
  • Bicycles and other sporting goods equipment
  • Equipment for material handling
  • Ladders
  • Laptops, televisions, cell phones
  • Luggage
  • Portable power tools, chainsaws, hedge clippers, weed whackers
  • Printing and textile machinery
  • Steering wheels and columns, seat frames
  • Magnesium alloys have also been used as a replacement to some engineering plastics due to their higher stiffness, high recycling capabilities, and lower cost of production.
