# EN-MC21110-T4 Magnesium

EN-MC21110-T4 is EN-MC21110 magnesium in the T4 temper. To achieve this temper, the metal is solution heat-treated and naturally aged. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare EN-MC21110-T4 to other magnesium alloys (top) and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
