Summary The present work examines the extrusion and mechanical properties of MExlOO alloys, which contain levels of rare earth alloying additions up to 0.4 wt%. It is shown that these alloys can display the high extrudability of alloy Ml with strengths nearing those of AZ31. Most importantly, the grades display high room temperature ductility; values of total tensile elongation as high as 30% have been observed. These benefits derive from a combination of grain refinement and texture weakening.
