1、 Production mode and nature
Magnesium ingots are made from high-purity magnesium through multiple processes such as vacuum melting, pouring, and cooling. Its appearance is silver white, with a lighter texture and a density of approximately 1.74g/cm ³, The melting point is relatively low (about 650 ℃), making it easy to process and transform into various shapes.
Magnesium ingots have excellent physical and chemical properties, good corrosion resistance, and are not easily reactive with gases such as oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen. They have high stability in high temperature and high pressure environments, and have good conductivity and thermal conductivity. These properties endow it with a wide range of applications.
2、 Main uses
1. Production of light metal alloys
Due to its low density, high strength, good corrosion resistance, and ease of processing and forming, magnesium is an ideal raw material for preparing lightweight and high-strength alloys. Additives for aluminum alloys, copper alloys, and production in the electronics industry all require the use of magnesium ingots.
2. Fluxes and reducing agents
Magnesium ingots are commonly used as fluxes in the casting industry, which can achieve a uniform structure on the surface of castings and improve product quality. Meanwhile, due to the strong reducibility of magnesium, magnesium ingots are also widely used as reducing agents, such as in processes such as steelmaking and ironmaking.
3. Vehicle and aviation sectors
Magnesium alloy is widely used in the production of automotive and aircraft components, such as engine cylinder heads, gearboxes, transmissions, etc., due to its high strength, good durability, and light weight. In addition, components such as remote control systems, oil pumps, and air washers used in large fighter jets and transport aircraft can also be made of magnesium alloy.
4. Medical industry
In medicine, magnesium is often used to prepare low-density and high-strength orthopedic implants, dental implants and other medical devices, with good biocompatibility and biodegradability.
In summary, magnesium ingots, as an important material, are widely used in various fields. Its excellent properties provide new possibilities for many manufacturing industries, while also greatly promoting innovation and progress in these industries.
