A380 Aluminum Alloy

A380 aluminum alloy is widely used for producing general-purpose die castings. It has exceptional mechanical properties and is used in hundreds of applications such as air brake castings, gear cases, and air-cooled cylinder heads. 

A380 Characteristics

Fluidity, pressure tightness, and resistance to hot cracking are just some of the A380 aluminum properties that are ideal for die-casting. Due to these properties, this 380 aluminum is extremely workable and machine friendly for cutting or shaping processes. It also has excellent finish characteristics so your final product will look and feel like top quality material.
