ALUMINUM A356.0 is a sand and permanent-mold casting alloy. It responds to an age-hardening heat treatment. This alloy has a relatively good combination of strength and ductility in the solution-treated and aged condition. Aluminum A356.0 is recommended for aircraft and missile components where high strength and resistance to corrosion are required. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and compressive and shear strength as well as fatigue. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as casting, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Al-258. Producer or source: Various aluminum companies.
