Abstract

In one aspect, the invention provides a magnesium-based casting alloy having relatively high strength and castibility, as well as an improved ductability and extrudability for wrought alloy applications. The magnesium-based wrought alloy comprises aluminum (AI) of between about 2.5 to about 4.0 wt. %, manganese (Mn) of less than about 0.1 wt. %, and a balance of magnesium (Mg). The invention further provides methods of forming a wrought alloy component and automotive components formed therefrom.
