Chill Mold Cast Parts Made from Copper Aluminum Alloys are Wear-Resistant, Corrosion-Resistant and resist embrittlement
Copper Aluminum alloys better known in the industry as aluminum bronze alloys are the choice alloys for designers when replacing steel weld fabrications with a one piece PIAD chill casting.
Copper Aluminum alloys with iron, nickel and manganese additions have mechanical properties which are exceeding the mechanical properties of carbon steel and medium alloyed steel. Besides these excellent mechanical properties, PIAD chill cast aluminum bronzes exhibit many additional physical properties which provide excellent choices for design engineers. These alloys can be used in many different industrial environments.
The copper aluminum alloys (aluminum bronzes) combined with PIAD's chill cast technology allow the design engineer to come up with creative solutions providing the best economical results.
The ability to weld aluminum bronze alloys with each other and in combination with steel creates very interesting and economically favorable design opportunities for the design engineer. PIAD chill mold castings featuring all the process benefits can be welded to larger steel structures providing good economical solutions. The preferred welding process to use is the TIG process which offers excellent weld joints without oxidation.
