Magnesium Battery Plate
The chemical and metallurgical conditions of all Elektron electrochemical alloys are carefully controlled to provide optimum properties. The Elektron electrochemical alloy range include the traditional commercial materials Elektron AZ31 and Elektron AZ61 as well as the high power specialty alloys developed by Magnesium Elektron such as MELMAG®AP65, MELMAG®75 and MELMAG®AT61. These alloys can be supplied in plate, strip and coil form.
Elektron AZ31 and Elektron AZ61 are industry standard alloys which are more economical to produce and offer good all round properties. MELMAG®AP65, MELMAG®75, and MELMAG®AT61 are high performance alloys which are more electrochemically reactive and generate much higher cell voltages. This results in rapid activation and short voltage transience on switching between loads, making them more suitable for the high demands required for military applications. The chemical and metallurgical conditions of all these alloys are carefully controlled to provide optimum properties.
