More info

Magnesium-yttrium casting alloy is made by melting metal magnesium and metal yttrium. The common alloy ratio is 20-70% magnesium, and the ratio can also be customized. The magnesium-based master alloy has a uniform and stable composition, which can meet the requirements of magnesium alloy composition, microstructure regulation, and performance improvement. Our master alloys are produced in adherence to strict quality control practices utilizing an induction melting and alloying process followed by static mold or direct chill (DC) continuous casting. Static cast finished products are available in a variety of forms including full or cut waffle ingot and notch bar ingot. MagnesiumYttrium (Mg-Y) Master Alloy master alloys are also available in the shot, screened and sized to specification and in bagged shot.

Magnesium Yttrium Master Alloy Application

Mg-Y series alloys: Rare earth element Y is one of the elements with the best strengthening effect, the most widely used, and the most in-depth research in magnesium alloys. Y has a high solid solubility in magnesium solid solution, the equilibrium solid solubility is 3.75% (atomic fraction)/12.47% (mass fraction) (566), and its solid solubility decreases exponentially with the decrease of temperature. Small, which means that the Mg-Y alloy is a typical magnesium alloy that can be precipitation strengthened by complete heat treatment.
