Super Magnesium Is Cheaper than Carbon Fiber, Lighter than Aluminum

Written by 

The propriety material known as ALLITE Super MAGNESIUM, is poised to become an alloy of choice for the cycling industry.

The Ohio-based Allite is led by cycling great Bruno Maier, who recently helped introduce the new material. In addition to being lighter than aluminum, the material is also stiffer. And because of its lower cost as well as its modest carbon footprint, the material could become the premium go-to for other industries, such as sporting goods, automotive, and aerospace.

In a press release, Maier, President of Allite, Inc., said, “With an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and high-performance composition, Allite Super Magnesium is simply the best choice for any distinguished brand seeking materials to make their products lighter, faster, stronger, and more environmentally friendly.”

The novel alloy has been used in aerospace and defense applications and proved to be every bit as effective and strong as carbon fiber.

The company went on to note that magnesium is regarded as one of the world's most sustainable and eco-friendly materials; it is said to be 100% recyclable and can be found naturally in "unlimited reserves".

Dr. Alan Luo, a recognized material science engineering expert and professor at The Ohio State University, said, “The superior benefits of magnesium are becoming more well-known and it is exciting to see Allite Super Magnesium delivering a material that can benefit such a vast array of industries. In addition to being earth friendly, magnesium has increased solubility, and is stronger than other comparable materials, making it a wise choice for the cycling industry and beyond.”

Allite, founded this year, seeks to supply proprietary material science consulting as well as to develop and manufacture high-performance metal alloys for industries worldwide.
