High mechanical properties (especially elongation) due to Low Fe
Outstanding impact resistance / fracture toughness (i.e. crash worthiness)
Excellent castability due to Si contents between 9 and 11%.
Excellent corrosion resistance compared to other diecasting alloys
Good die soldering resistance and extended die life when compared to other structural diecasting alloys due to Low Mn and Sr addition
Lower requirements on process technologies compared to other structural diecasting alloys.
Very good machinability and weldability
Easy recyclability / high possible recycling content
Mercalloy™ alloys are available in 3 different AA registered types (362, 367, and 368), but we tailor the alloy (+ heat treatment) to meet exactly your specific requirements and offer technical assistance to make you successful in applying them for your products!
