Magnesium


The magnesium coatings from Special Platings are the ideal solution when weight reduction is a matter of concern. Advantages that come with this type of coating are reduction of energy usage, fuel economy and handling.

In the automotive industry our magnesium coatings serve as corrosion protection, by using this the treated material gains in longevity contrary to products that have not been treated with our coatings. A few applications are:

  • Valves
  • Sumps
  • Seat frames
  • Gearbox covers
  • Rims
  • Doors

For important industrial applications we can, thanks to the improved properties of our magnesium, apply this instead of heavier fabrics like metal, plastic and ceramic. Applications are:

  • Oil pumps
  • Bearing surfaces of turbines
  • Parts where wear, friction and corrosion cause problems.
