Because of its superior mechanical properties, aluminum die castings are among the highest volume, mass produced items manufactured by the metalworking industry today.
Alloy A380: The most common of the aluminum die casting alloys. It offers the best combination of casting and product properties. It is used for a wide variety of products such as garden equipment, chassis for electronic equipment, engine brackets, housings for automotive alternators, starters and water pumps, home appliances, furniture, office equipment, hand tools, and power tools.
Alloy A360: This alloy offers high corrosion resistance and superior strength at elevated temperatures, while other properties are essentially equivalent to that of A380.
