The chemical and metallurgical of all Luxfer Electrochemical alloys are carefully controlled to provide optimum properties. This optimization results in rapid activation and short voltage transience on switching between loads. This makes the magnesium material suitable for high demands required by military and aviation battery applications.
The Elektron Electrochemical alloys supplied by Luxfer MRP are AZ31B and AZ61A. These alloys can be supplied in plate, strip and coil form. Minimum gauge offered is 0.010” (0.254mm) and maximum width is 10” (254mm). Sheet or strip is supplied with both surfaces brushed for performance improvements.
