Abstract : This patent relates to magnesium base alloys and more particularly to magnesium base alloys containing lithium and thorium. Further, it concerns the beta phase of magnesium-lithium alloys employing thorium. Recent developments, particularly in the aircraft industry, wherein stressed parts are subjected to elevated temperatures, have made it desirable to provide metals of light weight which have good stability and hardness at these elevated temperatures.
