As the lightest metal materials, Mg-Li alloys have a series of advantages and have been widely explored in application of aircraft, electronics and communication industries. At present, most of Mg-Li alloys are produced by mixing magnesium metal and lithium metal which lead to serious burning loss of magnesium and lithium. So the cost of Mg-Li alloys is high. Production of Mg-Li alloys by vacuum alnminothermic reduction process using Li2CO3 and magnesite as materials and aluminum powder as reductant can significantly reduces product cost. It also can produce many different ingredients of Mg-Li alloys. This paper presents you some important data on the process of production of Mg-Li alloys by vacuum alnminothermic reduction.
