Aluminum alloy type A380 is the most common specialized aluminum alloy because it combines the characteristics of easy casting, easy machining, and good heat transfer. Although A380 type has been considered to be easy to machine, its high silicon content makes it slightly rougher. It is used in a wide variety of products, including chassis for motor equipment, engine mounts, gearboxes, furniture, generators and hand tools.
A380 Aluminum Alloy Composition.
Copper Cu 3.0-4.0; Silicon Si 7.5-9.5.
Magnesium Mg 0.1Max; Iron Fe 2.0Max.
Zinc Zn 3.0Max; Manganese Mn 0.5Max.
Nickel Ni 0.5Max; Tin Sn 0.35Max.
A380 is close to the Japanese standard ADC10, are Al-Si-Cu system alloy, high silicon content.
