ELEKTRON ZW3 is a high strength wrought magnesium alloy. It shows improved hot formability; it is free from stress-corrosion cracking in service and is readily weldable by the argonarc and heliarc machine processes and by the manual method for simple joints. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and compressive strength as well as fatigue. It also includes information on low and high temperature performance, and corrosion resistance as well as forming, machining, joining, and surface treatment. Filing Code: Mg-19.
