nickel magnesia is an alloy that is typically used to create a variety of products. It is typically manufactured by melting together nickel and magnesium in a furnace at a high temperature. This process is repeated over several hours until the desired composition has been achieved.
The resulting nickel-magnesium alloy is then cast into ingots or extruded into shapes such as tubes or wires before being machined into its final form. American Elements can produce a wide variety of nickel-magnesium alloys in standard ratios or custom alloy compositions.
Electroless nickel plating is the preferred engineering coating solution for applications that require high levels of corrosion and wear resistance, deposit uniformity and hardness, solid lubricity, and solderability. A wide variety of materials can be plated onto magnesium, including aluminum, copper, iron, and steel.
Magnesium can be found naturally in minerals such as brucite, carnallite, dolomite, magnesite, and olivine. It can also be extracted by various methods from naturally occurring brines and other salt compounds.
It can be absorbed by the body through the skin, which makes it helpful in treating sunburn and other types of irritated skin conditions. Milk of magnesia can also be taken orally to relieve heartburn and acid indigestion.
In addition, it is also used to treat certain digestive issues such as constipation and diarrhea. It can be purchased over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription, but it should be used with caution and under the supervision of a doctor.
