AZ31-TP is a wrought magnesium alloy with good strength and corrosion resistance. Magnesium is notably lighter than aluminum while still maintaining its strength. This lightweight alloy is useful for several products and industries, but especially automotive and aerospace industries. AZ31-TB is also easily machinable and absorbs vibration. A few more products that use AZ31-TP magnesium include:

  • Phone and laptop cases
  • Orthopedic braces
  • Aircraft fuselage

Vincent Metals handles AZ31-TP Magnesium in rod, bar, plate, and sheet/strip.
