In 2018, we introduced a solid tungsten cube - the densest engineering metal. Now we're back with the least dense engineering metal: Magnesium. It's an insanely stark contrast to our Tungsten cube.
Why do I need a Magnesium Cube?
This is the 2nd in our planned series of KILO presentation cubes that come with a museum display base. It's the ultimate desktop display for the metal junkie!
Properties of Magnesium
Holding a piece of magnesium feels more like holding a block of wood. It has a density of only 1.74g/cc making it the least dense engineering metal. It's widely used to make extremely high strength-to-weight ratio alloys. Aluminum is 55% denser, steel 445%, and tungsten is a whopping 1103% denser!
It's hard to imagine a strong metal cube this size weighs only 1 kilogram!
Who we are: previous success, quotes
We have raised over $1.2 million here on Kickstarter with our previous metal projects, including the Tungsten KILO cube and our polished copper sphere.
Our KILO Magnesium Cube is 1 kilogram of the purest stable alloy (AZ31B, 97% pure) Magnesium metal. Each cube comes with a museum base.
We are including our Museum base FREE with any cube pledge!
