Magnesium Aluminum Alloy Powder

Mg-AL Alloys with high amounts of magnesium (around 50%) are brittle and more susceptible to corrosion than aluminum making them unsuitable for most engineering uses. These alloys are flammable when powdered, are more resistant to corrosion than pure magnesium, and are more reactive than pure aluminum, making them useful for pyrotechnics as a metal fuel and to produce sparks. The brittleness of the alloy makes it easily broken by a hammer and ground into usable powder, which is beneficial for pyrotechnics.

Magnesium Aluminum powder is a silver-gray solid metallic powder.
Typical Applications

Pyrotechnic, welding electrodes, and refractory bricks. Military applications include small-caliber ammunition, pyrotechnics, tracer rounds, and other specialty applications.

Packaging Options

The standard packaging is 200 lbs. per 22-gallon steel drum

Sustainable Qualities

Magnesium Aluminum Alloy Powder is a sustainable material because it uses both recycled and bio-based components. Magnesium is sourced from natural minerals, while Aluminum can be recycled from scrap metal, reducing the need for virgin materials. Additionally, the production process of this Alloy Powder consumes less energy than other conventional methods, minimizing its environmental impact.

Moreover, using this Alloy Powder in various applications contributes to a circular economy. Its lightweight and high strength-to-weight ratio make it a popular choice in the aerospace, automotive, and sporting goods industries. The ability to recycle the Aluminum component of the Alloy further extends its lifespan and reduces waste. By using this sustainable material, companies can promote resource conservation and environmental responsibility while benefiting from its versatile properties.
