Magnesium Alloy, Extrusions 4.0Y - 2.25Nd - 0.5Zr (WE43C-T5) Precipitation Heat Treated
This specification covers a magnesium alloy in the form of extruded bars, rods, wire, tubing, and profiles. These extrusions have 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.
AMS4485 is a new specification for magnesium alloy WE43C in the form of extrusions.
