Aluminum Alloys used in Sand Casting

Common applications of Aluminum alloys used in Sand Casting:

  1. 713.0 (Tenzaloy)
    Sand casted products madeof this aluminum alloy includes pumps, mining equipment,automotive and trailer parts.
  2. 535.0(Almag 35)
    With the superior ductility it offers, this aluminum alloy is a good replacement for malleable irons. This alloy is a high strength alloy and commonly used to manufacture aircraft components -components that need a high dimensional stability as well as a high strength.
  3. A357.0
    A357.0 is commonly used for aerospace castings because of its high strength.
  4. A356.0
    A356.0 is commonly used to manufacture a number of structural parts (including high strength air- and space frame parts) as well as parts in truck chassis, high velocity blowers and impellers, and machine parts and components.
  5. 356.0
    Automotive transmission cases, pump bodies, flywheel castings and oil pans are manufactured from this aluminum alloy.
  6. 355.0
    Used to manufacture various components including crankcases, air compressor pistons, water jackets and printing presses.
  7. 319.0
    This aluminum alloy is used to produce a number of components including gas and oil tanks, various engine parts, engine oil pans, engine crankcases and typewriter frames.

    C95300 is used in the parts of mining machines as well as to produce gears and cams.
  6. C86300(424)
    This alloy is commonly used to produce parts and components such as heavy load bearing gears and screw down nuts.
  7. C86500(421)
    C86500 alloy is used to manufacture machinery parts and is used as a substitute for malleable iron and steel.
  8. C99700(Tombasil)
    Used to produce marine hardware and corrosion resistant components, this alloy is also used to make ornamental castings, and eye bolts.

 

Ferrous Sand Casting Materials

Steel (BS3100)

Cast steels offer a range of beneficial properties, delivering sand casted products that featuring a high tensile strength and a high resistance to wear. It is a suitable material for applications where extreme conditions and temperatures are present.
