Federated F050 is a 5% silicon-aluminum casting alloy recommended for intricate design and thin wall castings. It produces pressure tight castings and has a high resistance to corrosion. The F050 PT grade is specially processed during manufacture to reduce the apparent solidification shrinkage with no change in the chemical specification or mechanical properties. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and compressive and shear strength as well as fracture toughness and fatigue. It also includes information on high temperature performance and corrosion resistance as well as casting, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Al-114.
