How to select Aluminum Alloys

Aluminum die casting alloys have a specific gravity of approximately 2.7 g/cc, which was placed as the lightweight structural metals. The majority of die castings produced worldwide are made from aluminum alloys. Six major elements constitute the die cast aluminum alloy system: silicon, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, and zinc. Each element affects the alloy both […]

Surface Treatment of Auminum

Surface treatments are applied to aluminum castings to provide a decorative finish, to form a protective barrier against environmental exposure, and to improve resistance to wear. Decorative finishes can be applied to aluminum castings through painting, powder coat finishing, polishing, epoxy finishing, and plating. Aluminum can be plated by applying an initial immersion zinc coating, […]

The process of casting aluminum

Casting is the original and most widely used method of forming aluminum into products. Technical advances have been made, but the principle remains the same: Molten aluminum is poured into a mold to duplicate a desired pattern. The three most important methods are die casting, permanent mold casting and sand casting. Die casting The die […]

Aluminum Alloy Structure

Aluminum alloy is an extremely complex structure, often comprising between six to nine different metal elements. In a molten state, during alloy production, some elements are dissolved in others (like cream in coffee) and some are not (like oil in water). As the molten alloy begins to cool a point will be reached when solidification […]

Electroless Nickel plating on Aluminum Alloy

What are the benefits of electroless nickel plating? Electroless nickel is one of the most versatile finishes, capable of meeting your needs from wear and corrosion protection to lubricity concerns. The uniform plating thickness of electroless nickel allows for tight tolerances to be achieved. “Electroless” plating avoids the snags of electroplating such as uneven buildup […]
