We supply castings and forged bars of aluminum – we can pour castings up to 30 kg in our mini-foundry, and we cast larger castings at partner foundries. An aluminum alloy is an alloy in which aluminum (Al) is the dominant metal. Typical alloying elements are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon, tin, nickel and zinc.

There are two main classifications namely cast alloys and wrought alloys which are further divided into heat treatable and non-heat treatable categories. About 85% of aluminum is used for wrought products, such as rolled plates, foils,…

Cast aluminum alloys produce cost-effective products due to their low melting point, although they generally have a lower tensile strength than wrought alloys.
