Magnesium Elektron - Service & Innovation in Magnesium
Magnesium Elektron Elektron® WE43B Magnesium Casting Alloy, UNS M18430
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Magnesium Alloy

Material Notes: ELEKTRON WE43B is a high strength magnesium based casting alloy developed and patented by Magnesium Elektron for use at temperatures up to 300°C. This alloy system maintains its good mechanical properties at elevated temperatures, without the use of either silver or thorium. The alloy is stable for long term exposure up to 250°C. ELEKTRON WE43B has excellent corrosion resistance characteristics.

Applications: The excellent retention of properties at elevated temperatures will be of interest to designers of aeroengines and other power systems, helicopter transmissions, missiles, racing and high performance cars.

Information provided by Magnesium Elektron.

Key Words: UNS M18430; ASTM B80; AMS 4427; MAM 4427; AECMA MG-C96002; ISO 16220: MC95310
