Description

Magnesium is one of the most effective and widely used alloying elements for aluminum, and is the principal element in the 5000 series alloys. These are moderate-to high-strength, non-heat-­treatable alloys that are readily weldable and have excellent resistance to corrosion, even in marine applications.
