Elektron® 91

Elektron® MAP+91 is a gas-atomized, magnesium-alloy powder, specifically designed and optimized for additive manufacturing applications.

Elektron® MAP+91 is based on a standard magnesium casting alloy, Elektron® AZ91 (ASTM: AZ91E), a lightweight alloy designed for aerospace and structural applications.

Elektron® MAP+91 powders are available in particle size distributions of 20 to 63 µm and 44 to 160 µm. Custom particle size distributions are also available.
