Magnesium alloys MRI 153M and MRI 230D offer attractive properties for die cast applications at temperatures of up to 150°C and 190°C, respectively. Typical structural applications in the automotive industry that operate in this temperature range include gearbox housings, oil pans, intake manifolds, valve covers, oil pumps, and crankcases. Additional applications relating to non-automotive industries may include string trimmers and power tool casings. The aim of this paper is to introduce the capabilities of these alloys in terms of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance at room temperature and creep resistance at high temperature. Special attention was given to the die casting process characteristics of the new alloys which will also be evaluated in comparison with regular commercial alloys. These characteristics are essential to the effectiveness and profitability of the die casting process technology and for the performance of the die cast components.
