Magsimal

Magsimal® – of filigree lightness,
but extremely resilient
An alloy for delicate parts which need to retain their strength and precise form over a long period. Good weldability, high resilience, can be used in virtually any application. Maximum corrosion resistance, even to salt water.

Parts which simulate the structure of the wings of a dragonfly: wafer thin, elastic and yet offering maximum strength and resilience, they enable this dainty insect to fly distances that never cease to amaze.
