319 Aluminum Sand Casting - 319 Aluminum Casting | LB Foundry

319 Aluminum Sand Castings

Aluminum alloy 319 is a 6% Si and 3.5% Cu alloy with 1.0 Fe maximum. It has excellent casting and machining characteristics. Corrosion resistance and weldability are very good. Mechanical properties are good in both the heat-treated (T5) and non-heat treated conditions.

The anodized color is generally gray with a brown cast depending on the amount and ratio of silicon and copper.

Typical applications for sand casting 319.0 are a wide variety of structural castings for engine parts, engine crankcases, gas and oil pans, and general commercial applications.
