I have some information on how to process magnesium. Maybe you can help your local platers get the process right. Let me know if you want the information.

What are these parts? Would it be worth it to ship them some distance to a plater who can do the job?

I would be intrested in the same pickling process and yes this would be worth it to me to send at a distance. The material is magnesium sheets measuring 48x144 inches and different size thickness from .032 to .063.

I am just curious to know why is magnesium alloy chrome plated? Is it chromate conversion or just chromium.

I have been told that "there is a new magnesium alloy named AZ31X that is available in sheet and that is more resistant to sea water atmosphere" Where can I have info on that ? Who is a supplier of that ?
