Phys.org reported this week that Hiromi Miura and colleagues at the Toyohashi University of Technology have conducted research to suggest that they have produced the world’s strongest magnesium alloy to date. The researches are conducting a further experiment in order to produce larger-sized samples of the alloy, according to Phys.org.

As quoted in the publication:

The Mg alloy produced by MDF showed an excellent balance of mechanical properties of 530 MPa yield stress, 650 MPa ultimate tensile strength, and 9% plastic strain to fracture (Fig. 1). This was the world strongest Mg alloy ever produced. The ultrafine grain structure and suppression of texture resulted in the extraordinarily high strength without spoiling ductility.
