Product description

In a research project at LKR Leichtmetallkompetenzzentrum Ranshofen, scientists have succeeded in developing flame-retardant magnesium alloys which self-extinguish in the event of a fire. This improved fire-resistance was achieved through the selective addition of alloy elements which significantly stabilise the materials oxidation behaviour when subject to fire: We are primarily investigating calcium alloys because calcium is cost-efficient and readily available. We can also add extra rare earth elements into the alloy to positively influence other material properties and to optimise the alloy for a particular application, explains AIT Scientist Stefan Gneiger. Magnesium is in great demand in lightweight construction as a means of reducing weight and emissions in the mobility sector.
