Summary

Mg alloys are attractive for applications where weight reduction is required because of its density which is the lowest of all construction materials. Furthermore, the advantages of the Mg alloys are an unlimited resource and good process properties as well as good recycling. To this date, most Mg alloys are produced by casting processes such as diecasting or thixomoulding and the reaming part of those are produced by using plastic forming such as forging, press. The insufficient mechanical strength and poor formability of Mg alloys mainly restrict their application area.
