MRI 230D was specially developed to overcome the high-temperature limitations of conventionally die-cast magnesium alloys. This innovative alloy was primarily developed for the automotive industry, mainly for power-train applications operating under high-temperature conditions. The present article aims at evaluating the die-casting characteristics of MRI 230D in comparison with conventional AZ91D Mg alloy. These characteristics are used to evaluate the applicability of this alloy for die-casting operations which are essential for mass production.
