Magnesium Elektron - Service & Innovation in Magnesium
Magnesium Elektron Melmag® AT61 Magnesium Alloy Battery Plate Rod Composition
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Magnesium Alloy

Material Notes: Magnesium Elektron produce a range of magnesium alloys to meet all seawater battery applications. These include the traditional commercial materials AZ31 and AZ61, as well as the high power specialty magnesium alloys developed by Magnesium Elektron such as MELMAG®AP65, MELMAG®75 and MELMAG®AT61. AZ31 and AZ61 are the industry standard alloys which are more economical to produce, available in a more extensive range of sizes and offer good all round properties. MELMAG® AP65, 75, and 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.
