Aluminum Alloys We Pour

Aluminum alloys are widely used in engineering structures and components where light weight or corrosion resistance is required. In general, stiffer and lighter designs can be achieved with aluminum alloys than is feasible with steels.

Cast aluminum alloys produce cost effective products due to the low melting point. The most important cast aluminum alloy system is Al-Si, where the high levels of silicon (4.0% to 13%) contribute to provide good casting characteristics.

C & L Aluminum Foundry, Inc. casts aluminum alloys in the 3xx.x and 7xx.x series. We purchase certified aluminum ingots to guarantee our castings meet our customers chemical specifications.
