Magnesium Alloy, Plate, 4.0Y - 2.25Nd - 0.5Zr (WE43C - T5), Precipitation Heat Treated
This specification covers a magnesium alloy in the form of rolled plate. This product has been used typically for parts requiring a combination of light weight, high yield strength up to 480 °F (250 °C), relatively high corrosion resistance, and good flammability resistance for magnesium alloys,but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS4371A results from a limited scope ballot to revise Composition (3.1.2, Table 1).
