... to 500 F, and must withstand explosive loads which can exceed 1,000 psi. Because light weight is needed, virtually all such pistons are cast aluminum. The preferred alloy is 357 aluminum, which contains 6.5 to 7.5 Si and 0.45 to 0.60 Mg. Tensile strength is 45,000 to 52,000 psi in solution treated, aged...
