The most common heat treat processes are T5 and T6 although many others are possible with our equipment.
Alcast Company Aluminum Casting Heat TreatmentOur combination of modern equipment and experienced personnel work together to provide the precise temperatures and the quick quench needed for controlled and effective heat treatment of aluminum castings.
The Alcast Company aluminum foundry, through the use of three separate heat treatment systems, can provide a variety of heat treat options.
The mechanical properties of our aluminum castings can be improved through proper casting design and our heat treatment processes. The properties listed below are standards from the Aluminum Association for A356:
|Temper||Ultimate (ksi)||Yield (ksi)||Elongation Percentage||Brinnell Hardness|
