Luxfer MEL Technologies - SoluMag™
Luxfer MEL Technologies, the world leader in the development, manufacture and supply of high‐performance magnesium alloys, is offering SoluMag™, a high-strength, high-corrosion-rate magnesium alloy developed specifically for making down-hole oil and gas industry tools that will quickly and reliably dissolve after use.
Tools and components made from SoluMag dissolve after use, eliminating the need for costly drill-out of a completed well. SoluMag dissolves quickly in chloride concentrations and temperatures below which other dissolving materials on the market remain inactive. Our aerospace background means that our alloys are of the highest quality and consistency, so users can have confidence that tools made from SoluMag will behave predictably down-hole.
