Magnesium materials without rare earth metals

Magnesium is a light, easily recyclable material whose availability on earth is not critical. For processing, alloys with rare earth metals are formed, as this results in better formability of the sheets and avoids the so-called rolling texture. Rare-earth metals are classified as critical with regard to their availability and are associated with environmental problems during their extraction. The aim is to develop rollable magnesium alloys without rare earth metals and to develop adapted casting and rolling processes that can process the new magnesium alloys well.
