Product

  • CERALOY Mg is an aluminium magnesium alloy.
  • This alloy is used to add magnesium metal in molten aluminium or its alloy to produce LM series/ alloys.

Purpose

  • As CERALOY Mg is supplied in aluminium-magnesium alloy form, The dissolution of magnesium is easily achieved then by adding magnesium metal (which may also result in burning of Mg metal in case of pure Mg addition).
  • Small additions of 0.25–0.5% Mg allow Al–Si alloys to be hardened by heat treatment, improving mechanical properties through the precipitation of Mg Si in a finely dispersed form.
  • Their proof stress can be almost doubled. Mg is used at levels of around 1% in high silicon piston alloys

  • Melt the aluminium metal.
  • Add CERALOY Mg as desired for alloy composition at around 750 to 780ºC.
  • Follow the normal fluxing and cleaning procedure from CERAFLUX range.
  • Degas the melt at suitable temperature & clean with small amount of flux.
  • After all the process is completed, take the sample for checking the Magnesium content, if satisfactory start pouring immediately.
