Why make the move to magnesium now?

Magnesium’s growing popularity is due, in large part, to simply gaining a better understanding of the element, its abundance and its uses. In addition, magnesium’s reputation as a highly flammable entity has cooled. Yes – powdered, shaved or thin strip magnesium is easy to ignite, but try to do the same to magnesium in mass or bulk.

Because magnesium alloys for die-casting have an ignition temperature of 850°F, a cast magnesium component is usually the last thing to ignite in a fire. And because magnesium has such good conductivity, a high-energy source and an ample supply of air are needed to even reach this ignition temperature. Tests have shown that flames consume a vehicle before magnesium parts even burn in a car fire. Magnesium keeps its cool.
