Super Magnesium alloy: Lighter than aluminum and cheaper than carbon fiber

While each of the three alloys – AE81, ZE62 and WE54 – has its own specific strengths (weldability, forgeability and high temperature work, respectively), they’re all highly resistant to corrosion, fatigue and wear, with excellent hardness and electrical insulation properties, according to the manufacturer. And they’re the only magnesium alloys on the market that will melt, instead of burning, under a 1,200° F (650° C) flame.
