Tomorrow’s materials: fire-resistant magnesium alloys

In a research project at LKR Leichtmetallkompetenzzentrum Ranshofen, scientists have succeeded in developing flame-retardant magnesium alloys which self-extinguish in the event of a fire. This improved fire-resistance was achieved through the selective addition of alloy elements which significantly stabilise the material’s oxidation behaviour when subject to fire: “We are primarily investigating calcium alloys because calcium is cost-efficient and readily available. We can also add extra rare earth elements into the alloy to positively influence other material properties and to optimise the alloy for a particular application”, explains AIT Scientist Stefan Gneiger. Magnesium is in great demand in lightweight construction as a means of reducing weight and emissions in the mobility sector.
