Magnesium, the lightest injected metal
in the world.

ID Casting manufactures parts made of AZ91D magnesium alloy which is 33% lighter than aluminium and 3x stronger than thermoplastics.

Our hot-chamber transformation process uses less energy than the cold-chamber process, making production costs more competitive.

Properties and benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium has a melting point of 650 degrees Celsius and offers a wide range of properties: mechanical strength, fluidity enabling complex shapes to be obtained, damping capacity, electromagnetic protection and suitability for surface treatments. Magnesium offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and is the metal of choice for customers looking for lightness without sacrificing rigidity.
