Meltron A8 is a general purpose magnesium alloy used for making sand and permanent mold castings for service at normal temperatures. The tensile strength and ductility of A8 are considerably improved by solution heat treatment. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and compressive strength as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as casting, heat treating, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: Mg-27. Producer or source: Magnesium Elektron Inc..
