Webinar: High Performance Aluminum Casting Alloys for Engine Applications
In this sponsored webinar from Eck Industries, learn about a new range of aluminum alloys that boast superb casting characteristics coupled with high mechanical properties, opening up new applications for aluminum castings.
In the early 1980s, promising research and development efforts focused on powder metallurgy revealed that aluminum alloys containing 4 wt% cerium exhibit high temperature mechanical properties exceeding those of the best commercial aluminum casting alloys currently in production. Cerium oxide is an abundant rare earth oxide that is often discarded during the refining of more valuable rare earths.
More recently, the Critical Material Institute and Eck Industries developed a series of binary aluminum-cerium alloys with and without traditional elemental additions. This webinar will discuss the casting characteristics, mechanical properties and unique opportunities afforded from these innovative new alloys.
