This practice covers a system for designating the tempers of magnesium alloys, cast and wrought. The designations for temper are used for all forms of magnesium and magnesium-alloy products except ingots and are based on the sequence of basic treatments used to produce the various tempers. The temper designation follows the alloy designation, the two being separated by a dash.
