Cirrus Mg Defender™ offers an innovative sustainable magnesium coating technology that reduces the cost, energy usage and weight of coatings for magnesium components.
The proprietary low voltage anodising technology creates a tightly bonded protective interlock layer on the magnesium surface. The interlock layer forms a protective layer that permits deposition of highly functional, great looking plated or painted surface finishes.
Mg Defender™ improves the corrosion resistance and durability of Mg alloys with a sustainable, low cost advanced surface coating.
Mg Defender™ is a disruptive coating technology that can eliminate the use of toxic chemicals, reduce the energy and raw materials required to apply coatings as well as reduce the complexity involved.
Until recently, the wider use of Mg alloys has been limited by their susceptibility to corrosion.
The growing interest in using light-weight alloys in aerospace to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, means there is a demand for advanced new protective surface coatings.
Mg Defender™ is a disruptive coating technology that can eliminate the use of toxic chemicals, reduce the energy and raw materials required to apply coatings as well as reduce the complexity and time involved.
Components must be stable under thermal and mechanical cycling, aging and humidity.
