Alloys A380.0 and B380.0

These alloys are used for casting general purpose die castings. They have good mechanical properties and are used to make housings for lawn mowers and radio transmitters, air brake castings, gear cases and air-cooled cylinder heads. Castability—Fluidity, pressure tightness and resistance to hot cracking all are good. Machinability-Although the machinability of A380.0 and B380.0 is considered good, carbide-tripped tooling is recommended because of the alloy’s […]
