206 is not your typical aluminum. It can be cast. It's tough, and it delivers!
Reduce the weight of your ductile iron parts by 50%!
Military engineers call it “unbreakable.”
Starting a new project?
A206: Density 0.101 lb/cu in. Poisson's Ratio 0.33. Elastic Modulus 10.2 Msi.
When compared to ductile iron, 206 aluminum delivers 50% lighter weight.
We can use low cost sand tools and foundry practices to to provide strength and ductility similar to forged aluminum.
Properties dependent on section size, cooling rate, exact alloy chemistry, gating system characteristics, casting soundness, and post processing such as hot isostatic pressing.
Premium properties achieved with close cooperation between engineer and foundry.
Successful 206 aluminum applications today:
Military Trucks - Safety critical steering knuckles, brake calipers & hubs; differential cases & carriers, suspension components
Combat Vehicles - Final drives, transmission components, PTO's, gun mounts
Marine Racing - Outboard motor mounts
Top Fuel Racing - Rear differential cases
Aftermarket Automotive - Rear differential cases over 800 HP, and brake calipers (equiv. to 2618, yet more cost effective)
