We can help keep tooling costs low, too.


Aluminum die-cast alloys are some of the most lightweight structural metals available. Aluminum is the most widely used diecast alloy in the world. It comes in a variety of combinations and casting options depending upon your specific project. Below are some of the most common aluminum alloys used for aluminum die casting.

Aluminum Die Casting Technical Specifications

Alloy 360 provides a project with the benefit of higher corrosion resistance, superior strength at elevated temperatures, and somewhat better ductility. This alloy is much more difficult to cast, which is why it is important to select the best source of alloy 360 and die casting foundry for your given prototype casting project. Alloy 380 is the most widely cast of the aluminum die casting alloys, making it easier to produce and the most effective combination of material properties. Most often it is utilized in electronic and communications equipment, automotive components, engine brackets, transmission and gear cases, appliances, lawn mower housings, furniture components, hand and power tools.


Alloy 390 was initially developed for automotive engine blocks. It boasts low ductility and a durability that resists deterioration over time. It allows for precision casting with the greatest castability of all aluminum alloys. Projects using this aluminum alloy include precision casting endeavors such as die cast valve bodies and compressor housings and pistons.


Alloy 369 resists chronic wear and tear and is often used as a cost-effective alternative for alloy 390. Alloy 369 is less abrasive making it a good choice for heavy machine tools.
