Description

Material EN AW-Al Mg1(B) is produced for wire and prewire for mechanical applications, for extruded and drawn components. The material is food-safe. To the comparable mark AlMg1,8, material No. 3.3326 acc. to DIN 1725-1 : 1983-02, applies: The alloy has a high resistance to corrosion, seawater and salted atmosphere. Strength increases and cold workability decreases according to the Mg-content. It is naturally hard, i.e. a strength increase can only be achieved by cold forming, not by controlled heat treatment. It is ideal for brightening and anodizing. Machinability and weldability are enhanced by increasing Mg-content. The mark AlMg1,8 as a AlMg-alloy shows a relatively low strength. Application: ferrules for wire cables, in engineering for load-carrying constructions and for transport containers. In electrical engineering for aerials and parabolic mirrors.
