Mostly, Alloy 380 or Aluminum-silicon-copper alloy is suitable for Aluminum die casting. It provides best combination of strength, corrosion resistance together with the high fluidity and freedom from hot shortness which are required for perfect casting. It is possible to maintain close tolerances and produce good surface finishes in this method. These die castings are typically higher in tooling price but lower in piece price. Applications include Streetlamp housings, pistons, gears cylinder heads etc.
