Sand Casting has been a key process in manufacturing for thousands of years and still accounts for approximately 70% of all castings. Whether Sand Casting is the best option for the production of a particular component will be dictated by considerations such as the required geometry, performance, alloy choice, production run, tolerance within specification and … Read more
ALUMINIUM CASTING ALLOY LM25TF
(HEAT TREATED CASTING)
(BS 1490:1988 LM25TF)
Aluminium Casting Alloy LM25TF is a common general purpose alloy of aluminium which is used where good mechanical properties are needed. It has a good resistance to corrosion and has high strength. It responds well to heat treatment and is available in four different conditions. Its uses are increased by its availability in as-cast and partially heat-treated condition as well.
LM25 has numerous applications including electrical, food, chemical and marine. It is extensively used in the automotive sector where cylinder blocks, wheels, heads and other parts are regularly cast in this aluminium alloy. LM25 offers good machinability.
Chemical Composition – Al-Si7Mg0.5
