... mold cavities. Their relatively low melting points allow the use of hot chamber die casting, and their minimal reactivity with steel below 705 °C (1300 °F) allows the use of inexpensive steel crucibles and molds. Since magnesium and its alloys readily react with air in the molten state, it is necessary...
