Casting Alloy Specifications
High Pressure Die Casting Alloys and Gravity Alloys
Includes composition limits listed on the resource or those recognized as "AA" alloys by the Aluminum Association. Also included under the resources tab is the Alloy "Physical" Specifications chart.
- Die Cast Alloys (DC)
- Sand Cast Alloys (SC)
- Permanant Mold Alloys (PM
- Castable: ability of molten alloy to flow readily in die and to fill thin sections
- Machinable: composite ratings based on ease of cutting, chip characteristics, quality of finish, and tool life.
- Platable: ability of a die cast part to take and hold an electroplate applied by present standard methods (exclusive of anodizing methods).
