Better part strength
In the spirit of improving the quality of our products, our aluminium foundries now use a new aluminium alloy to produce castings.
This alloy contains less iron than conventional alloys but is offset by an increase in manganese content (an iron-like transition metal). The advantage is to provide a material that combines strength and durability, due to its extremely fine grains.
As a result, the alloy increases the mechanical and corrosive resistance of our parts.
After having carried out numerous tests, we have observed a better resistance of our castings with the new alloy which has 35% to 40% more resistance compared to our standard alloy.
These results allow us to easily meet Class 3 of the European standard for all our brackets, arms and armatures.
