What is A356 aluminum alloy?

What is A356 die casting alloy used for?

  • In UNS standard, it is A13560 and the SAE designation is 336. A356 aluminum die casting alloy has good casting and machining performance, suitable for use in aircraft, pump housings, impellers, high-velocity blowers, and other structural castings that require high strength.

What is the difference between 356 and A356?

  • Alloy A356 has greater elongation, higher strength and considerably higher ductility than Alloy 356. A356 has improved mechanical properties because of lower iron content, compared to 356. Typical applications are airframe castings, machine parts, truck chassis parts, aircraft and missile components, and structural parts requiring high strength

What is the heat treatment for A356 alloy?

  • • Alloy A356 is a 7Si-0.3 Mg alloy with 0.2 Fe (max) and 0.10 Zn (max). The T6 heat treatment is a solution-anneal heat treat followed by a 320F aging.
