Summary

Magnesium and its alloys are increasingly used to substitute other metals and plastics. The decisive factors are excellent properties like low density, good casting properties, electromagnetic shielding, high specific strength and elasticity. Because of these features magnesium and its alloys became very popular in automobiles, computers, aerospace, sports goods, mobile phones and many other applications. But the current growth in the application of magnesium is only possible by technological improvement.
