Magnesium has several advantages over other metals. It is lighter, stronger and stiffer than aluminium, titanium and steel. Products made from lightweight magnesium-coated components are therefore more energy-efficient and user-friendly.
It is approximately 35% lighter than aluminium, 60% lighter than titanium and 80% lighter than steel. Products made from lightweight magnesium-coated components are therefore easier to lift and move. This makes them both more energy-efficient and more user-friendly.
Another useful property of magnesium is its ability to absorb shocks. This makes the products more comfortable to use.
Magnesium can withstand greater pressure and weight than aluminium, titanium or steel. Weight for weight, magnesium is 20% stronger than aluminium.
