We are aluminium casting specialists and offer are range of BS1490:1988 compliant
A general purpose high strength casting alloy used
mainly where good mechanical properties are required combined with
resistance to corrosion. Typically used in the food, chemical,
marine, electrical and automotive industries and commonly used
for cylinder blocks and heads.
Suitable for marine 'on deck' castings, water-cooled manifolds
and jackets, automotive applications, motor housings, meter cases
and switch-boxes. LM6 offers excellent corrosion resistance and
is suitable for castings that are to be welded. Also ideal for
pump parts, for the paint industry, and food & domestic castings.
LM13: A low
expansion piston alloy which is hard wearing with excellent bearing
properties. Commonly used for both diesel and petrol engine pistons.
aerospace alloy, offers high strength and corrosion resistance.
This standard includes full heat treatment.
engineering applications suited for instrument cases, tool handles,
switch gear and were moderate mechanical properties are required.
Suited to thin forms and were castings are required to be pressure-tight.
In its heat treated state LM4 castings are suited to relatively
high static loadings.
L169: This is the strongest highest strength alloy, used for the most critical and demanding applications.
