Product Announcement from General Magnaplate Corporation

Magnadize is a Proprietary Magnesium Coating-Image
  • Increases surface hardness
  • Improves resistance to corrosion and oxidation
  • Prevents abrasion and galling
  • Available with release (non-stick) properties
  • Exhibits high dielectric strength
  • Permits fuller utilization of light-weight magnesium
  • Effective moisture seal

A proprietary coating system that surpasses all other current methods of magnesium treatment. Further enhancement of this coating is achieved by use of supplementary polymers or dry film lubricants.

Rc 58 - 60 for heavy coatings. Thinner coatings can be as low as Rc 35. Additional dry films can be applied for special longer wear characteristics or to prevent outgassing.

Properties Coefficient Of Friction: as coated 0.12 to 0.15. With supplementary surface coatings of dry film lubricants or polymers, COF can be as low as 0.04.

Operating temperature range: -100° to +550° F.

Resistance to salt spray per ASTM B-117, up to 75 hours, as coated. With supplementary treatment, 300 hours. With some grades of polymer, over 1,000 hours salt spray resistance is obtainable.

Meets the requirements of Mil-M-45202 and AMS-2476. Surface growth is up to 70% of total thickness, depending on type and class.

Most magnesium alloys react favorably to the MAGNADIZE process. Controlled coating thicknesses range from 0.0002 to 0.0030", providing various degrees of wear resistance, lubricity, corrosion resistance and friction requirements not only for the specific application, but for the specific magnesium alloy used.

Typical Applications:

  • Frames
  • housings
  • gearboxes
  • wheels
  • Compressor components
  • Gear splines
  • Sliding vanes
  • Air operated tools
  • Castings
  • and any lightweight, low inertia-required components.
