K-Alloy® (A304) Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Die Casting Alloy has Advanced Strength and Thermal Properties making it ideal for Automotive electrification

Manufacturers Specify K-Alloy (A304)
to Reduce the Actual Cost of Corrosion

K-Alloy is a high-performance general purpose die casting alloy for any part that is required to perform in a harsh environment. K-Alloy is particularly suitable for a variety of EV vehicle applications where corrosion resistance, as-cast high elongation properties, and superior die life are critical.
____________

Current casting examples include:

Automotive,
transportation
and harsh
under hood
environments
Electronics Equipment Enclosures
Outdoor lighting for Commercial, Residential, Stadium
Defense
Including Drones,
Radios, Antennas
Saltwater Applications Include Boat Fittings, Fishing Reels, Recreational Equipment

Key Benefits of K-Alloy (A304) vs. A380, A360, A413, Aural and Silafont:

K-Alloy is More corrosion resistant than other die casting alloys and K-Alloy Requires No coatings for corrosion resistance - may lower parts cost and eliminate toxic chromate (Cr3)
K-Alloy as cast exhibits 5% elongation. T7 heat treatment can increase elongation to 8% - 10%.
K-Alloy Die Life is equal to 100% of A380 - Can Use current dies - Significant Die Cost Savings vs. Aural and Silafont
