This document defines the grades and the corresponding requirements for cast alloyed magnesium materials.
This document specifies 2 groups of magnesium alloy grades by a classification based on the chemical composition. The first group deals with grades for magnesium alloy ingots. The second group deals with grades for magnesium alloy castings.
This document also specifies mechanical properties measured on test pieces machined from cast samples.
This document does not cover technical delivery conditions for magnesium alloy castings (see EN 1559-1  and EN 1559-5 ).
