Alloy 296.0 is an aluminum permanent-mold casting alloy with higher silicon than 295.0, which reduces shrinkage and improves fluidity. This datasheet provides information on key alloy metallurgy, fabrication characteristics, processing effects on physical and mechanical properties, and application characteristics of this series alloy. Room-temperature aging characteristics for aluminum alloy 296.0-T4 and 296.0-T6 are also illustrated.
