Can A356 Aluminum Alloy be Used in Die Casting Process?

Can A356 Aluminum Alloy be Used in Die Casting Process

A356 is a cast aluminum alloy, non-die cast aluminum alloy. It is mainly used for structural parts with high strength and good elongation. Fe element exists as impurity, and the content of Fe affects the elongation of aluminum castings. The higher the content of Fe, the more brittle the aluminum castings are. As you may know, the Fe content of A356 is less than 0.2%, and the Fe content of A356 aluminum ingot is less than 0.12%. However, the die-casting…
