Six-Sides Sawn Aluminium Cast Plates Impact-706 (EN AW 7021)

If the requirements towards the strength are high and the component must endure heavy loads, this is the ideal solution. The six-sides sawn cast aluminium plate is characterised by very good machinability, very high strength and very low residual stresses. Therefore it is an excellent solution for multiple applications under heavy loads in mechanical engineering and mould-making.

The very good ability for polishing leads to excellent product quality and a very long lifetime of injection and foaming moulds. Even components with excessive machining can be realised easily.

Comprehensive range of both Metric and Imperial sizes are available to order.
