Magnesium sputtering target is made of pure magnesium, which is one of the alkaline-earth metals of Group 2(IIa) of the periodic table, and it’s the lightest structural metal. It’s silvery-white metal that ignites easily in air and burns with a bright light. Solid magnesium metal is protected by a layer of oxide. Although thin, this layer prevents the metal from reacting with air.
Application of Magnesium (Mg) Sputtering Target
Similar to titanium, magnesium has a high strength-to-weight ratio. This makes magnesium a favorable choice for products that must be lightweight. These include aircraft, car engines, and missiles. It can also be found in explosive and pyrotechnic devices, as the element produces an extremely bright white light when it is burned in the air.
Magnesium compounds are used for refractory material, which is designed to withstand extremely high temperatures. Refractory material lines furnaces that are used to produce metals, glass, and cement.
