Magnesium Elektron - Service & Innovation in Magnesium
Magnesium Elektron Elektron® AZ91E Magnesium Casting Alloy
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Magnesium Alloy

Material Notes: ELEKTRON AZ91E is a general purpose gravity sand casting alloy containing aluminum, zinc and manganese. Good properties may be achieved particularly with the use of chills in the mold. Corrosion resistance is excellent.

Applications: The alloy may be used in aerospace casting applications particularly where there is no high temperature requirement or a requirement for pressure tightness.

Information provided by Magnesium Elektron.

Key Words: ASTM B80 AZ91E; BS2970 MAG7/3; DIN MgAl /19 Zn1; AFNOR G-A9Z1; BS2L125; ISO 16220 MC21120
