New magnesium alloy is world’s strongest and lightest metal

If You are an investor looking for the “Next Big Thing”, Magnesium appear to be one of the biggest investment opportunity of this century. Worlds largest companies are using magnesium alloy .

The revolutionary magnesium material can be used to create new revolutionary cars, airplanes, trains, military equipment’s, ships, mining and drilling equipment’s, all transportation trucks, agriculture machinery, manufacturing and spaceships, electronics and biomedical devices. It is the new and the most  important material from the future, a material that could catapult us onto the next level.

The magnesium based material was invented by a team of researchers from the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Los Angeles (UCLA. The innovative material which has an exceptional strength and is extremely lightweight is made of 86% of magnesium, and 14% of silicon carbide particles according to the study published by the journal Nature. To create the so-called ‘nanocomposite metal’, the team developed a new method to disperse and stabilize nanoparticles in molten metals. The low density and high strength of magnesium showed record levels of specific resistance (amount of weight that resists material before breaking) and specific module (ratio between rigidity and weight) in both low and high temperatures.

Australian and Chinese researchers have discovered an Magnesium alloy that they say is the world’s strongest and lightest. Crucially, they say it doesn’t corrode.

If it proves possible to use it in vehicle manufacturing, the researchers say cars could weigh hundreds of kilograms less, saving motorists up to 40 per cent on fuel.

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a material using magnesium which is light like aluminum, but as strong as titanium alloys. This material has the highest strength-to-weight ratio known to mankind.

Creating a material that’s both strong and lightweight is the ultimate goal for all global manufacturers. Recently, magnesium alloys have gained huge attention as world’s lightest structural material. Nanotechnology is helping revolutionize many technology and industry sectors, information technology, energy, environmental science, medicine, homeland security, food safety, and transportation, among many others.

Apple currently uses a Magnesium frame in their iBook laptop. Dell notebook 14 Rugged Extreme will be your saving grace. This mini tank sports a military-tough design, complete with a magnesium alloy chassis and the ability to shrug off water, sand and dust.

Microsoft has designed the Pro 3 as a 2-in-1 hybrid device so it’s the bigger device on test. The Surface Pro 3 has a unique kickstand built into its chassis so it can be propped up on tables or even on your lap.
