WHY USE MAGNESIUM IN AEROSPACE

Magnesium Elektron alloys combine weight saving with high mechanical strength to provide a versatile materials for use in many current aircraft components leading to improved fuel efficiency and range.

Weight reduction initiatives are being driven by higher fuel costs, greater efficiency and reductions in CO2 emissions for environmental reasons. The weight advantage over aluminium is becoming increasingly important, along with the ease with which to produce complex critical structures and reduce cost. Magnesium is an attractive alternative in the field of advanced materials for aircraft systems of today and the future.
