California Metal & Supply is a leading supplier of quality Magnesium and Magnesium Alloy Sheet, Magnesium Alloy Plate, Magnesium Alloy Bar.

Magnesium is the third most commonly used structural metal, following iron and aluminum. Magnesium, in its purest form, can be compared with aluminum, and is strong and light.

Magnesium and Magnesium Alloy Applications: Magnesium is used in several high volume part manufacturing applications, including automotive and truck components. Currently the use of magnesium alloys in aerospace is increasing, mostly driven by the increasing importance of fuel economy and the need to reduce weight.

Magnesium Alloy AZ31B Properties

Principal Design Features

Certainly the most widely available of the magnesium grades, AZ31B is produced in a wide variety of shapes from sheet and plate through bar forms. It is commonly used as an alternative to aluminum alloys due to its high strength to weight ratio. Care must be taken in machining the grade, however, because the chips and powder can be flammable.


AZ31B is used in a variety of aerospace applications and general commercial applications requiring good properties and high strength to weight ratio.


AZ31B has a very high machinability rating. As with any magnesium alloy, great care should be taken because this material is flammable. To avoid this potential hazard, positive cuts should be taken, as large chips are less likely to ignite. Flooding with lubricant is also required and good procedure should include constant monitoring of the operation by a machinist equipped with a magnesium fire arresting kit, such as black powder.


Best results are obtained by preheating AZ31B to 500 F. Bend radii of twice the material thickness is possible with proper procedures.


AZ31B is best welded by the inert gas tungsten arc and metal arc methods.


Stress relieve at 300 F for 30 to 60 minutes, followed by air cooling. For full annealing, heat AZ31B to 650 F and furnace cool slowly.
