Notes
A319 X X X Used to simulate the heat transfer rates of die-cast A380
A355 X X X Rarely used, but is still supported
A356 X X X Most common gravity cast alloy of aluminum. With a T6 temper, the mechanical properties are used to simulate die-cast A380
A357 X X X Stronger than A356. Best gravity cast aluminum for parts where strength is a concern
A380 X X X Gravity cast A380 is used when parts will be submitted for independent inspection prior to die-casting
AZ91D X X X Most common gravity cast magnesium alloy. Lightweight.
AM60 X X   Magnesium alloy can be used in many applications, but is primarily for die casting
Stainless Steel X   X Many alloys of stainless steel are available. Small parts can be Investment cast with us in SS and large parts can be tooled with partner Foundry in Golden to cast
Zinc X X X Nearly as strong as steel, zinc is an excellent choice when weight is not a design concern
A206 and 413     X Many more Aluminum Alloys are now being in demand
Steel     X Steel is available via a partner foundry in Golden
