Magnesium alloy have always been attractive to designers due to their low density, only two thirds that of aluminum. This has been a major factor in the widespread use of magnesium alloy castings and wrought products. Magnesium alloys are also used in many other engineering applications where light weight is a significant advantage. Magnesium alloys are processed into castings (die, sand, permanent mold and investment), extrusions, forgings, impact extrusions and flat rolled products. There is a wide diversity of non-automotive die cast parts ranging from computer components, luggage frames, lawn mower decks and chain saw housings to bicycle frames, fishing reels, ski bindings, video and digital camera housings and archery bows.
