The principal alloying element is magnesium, alloys with high magnesium and manganese result in high strength but non-heat treatable, good welding characteristics, anodizes well and good resistance to corrosion even in marine environments. The downsides are: limited cold working and lower safe operating temperatures due to magnesium content.
