  • Molten magnesium will oxidize uncontrollably in an atmosphere of air. To inhibit this, a protective gas is used to cover the melt. The gas most commonly used today is SF6. Fluorine is known to be the active component of the gas. There is a major problem with SF6, and that is that it has a strong Global Warming Potential (GWP). The GWP of SF6 is 23 900 times that of CO2. The aim of the present work is to understand the mechanism of the protection of molten magnesium. Hopefully, this allows us to… CONTINUE READING
