oops and i forgot the other nice properties of it as well
DAMPING Absorbs vibration for longer life, while retaining dimensional stability.
TOOLING 4 to 5 times greater tool life.
FINISH Up to 5 times more machinable than rolled aluminum.
COSTS Machine dry, without oil or chemicals.
WEIGHT Easier handling saves energy and time.
FLATNESS Eliminates surface machining.
STABILITY No stress relief after machining; no warps and is dent resistant.
WELDING Strong weldments up to 95% of parent metal, with minimal porosity.
ALKALI-RESISTANT Makes for easy cleaning.
RESISTANT A wide variety of chemical treatments exists for
corrosion protection, alteration of surface appearance, and to provide a base for painting. Basic engineering precautions averts galvanic corrosion.
STRENGTH Excellent strength and stiffness per unit weight.
NON-GALLING Sound and rugged surface, offering a low coefficient of friction and minimum wear,
DISSIPATION Ideal for a broad range of operating temperatures, from 350 degrees Fahrenheit to -30 degrees Fahrenheit.
NONMAGNETIC Good for electrical and computer applications.
YIELD Greater amount of finished magnesium material obtained, pound for pound.
SALVAGE Scrap retains a consistently high level of value.
edit: um i am no metal expert but what is the difference if i get a plate or sheet style forging... is plate when they coat it over another metal or sumtin? I think sheet is what i am loking for but i am a little bit worried cause getting this isnt like getting a wrong part its expensive...I might have to ask sum1 i know who machines and works with aircraft he'll know but if its a simple answer i'd rather not bother him... although hell most likely machine the chassoi for me as he know a thing or two more than myself
