Aluminum Prices March 2022

Die Casting Alloy Materials Are Crazy. I am getting calls from the customers of my competitors asking that I quote a part price. I always refuse to quote because my competitor is facing the same material cost increases I am facing. Some die casting materials, like za27, are not available today. I will have to wait a few weeks for material. I’ve never seen this before.

In the past, prior to 2020, the die casting metal alloy prices were like gentle waves on the ocean, they go up, they come down. I have always ridden the waves in the past by not increasing or changing the part prices for material increases. But I can’t ride the increased material costs anymore.

Today, the cost of aluminum alloy for die casting increased another $0.05 a pound. Zinc alloys have risen similarly. That is an increase that I have never seen in my 30 years in business. My customers will also unfortunately have to pay a higher part price Or I cannot supply them the parts.

If you have a good supplier, pay the higher part cost. They cannot avoid the cost increases. Die Casting Aluminum Alloy Prices in March 2022 are Crazy.

The Different Alloys used in Die Casting Manufacturing 2021

Die Casting Alloys – The Different Alloys Used in Die Casting Manufacturing. Kinetic Die Casting Company uses different types of metal die casting alloys depending on the needs of our customers.

    The Die Casting Alloys we use are:

  • A360 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A380 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A383 aluminum die casting alloy
  • A413 aluminum die casting alloy
  • ZA27 die casting alloy
  • #3 zinc die casting alloy
  • #5 zinc die casting alloy

A380 is the die casting alloy we use the most. About 80% of our parts are produced in A380. A380 is the least expensive aluminum alloy. It is very versatile for a very nice finish on a die casting part.

A360 aluminum die casting alloy is used when corrosion resistance is required. It is used by many manufacturers whose parts are exposed to salt spray or other corrosive environments.

A413 die casting alloy is another alloy we use to produce a lot of parts. This alloy is used in a lot of thermal conductance applications (heat sinks). It has a very nice surface finish and can be used to cast thinner walls. It has better corrosion resistance than A380.

A383 alloy is less expensive than A413 and also is used when the die casting part wall thicknesses are thinner than normal.

ZA27 die casting alloy is used when greater die casting part strength is needed. This die casting alloy is a marriage between aluminum and zinc.

#3 and #5 zinc die casting alloys are the most common alloys used for zinc die casting. Many of the products that were produced in zinc are now made in aluminum or plastic. Zinc makes up less than 10% of the die casting parts made in America today.

The Advantages of Aluminum Military Parts over Plastic in 2021

The Advantages of Aluminum Military Parts over Plastic. Being in the military force is a life-threatening job. Together with this risk is the honor of saving one’s territory, which is one of the reasons why a number of men choose this as their career path. However, their success does not depend on their skills alone. The equipment to be used should also be considered.

To help them in fulfilling their goal, they should know the advantages of aluminum military parts over plastic military parts. Why?
Plastic military parts may be cheaper, but it cannot match the advantages given by aluminum military parts.

Aluminum military parts can withstand prolong stocking periods. When not in battle, the equipment tend to be stored in the barracks. Unfortunately, some of these fade quickly in terms of quality and usability. It is because some parts are made of a special plastic which is not capable of keeping its condition over time. Aluminum does this, even if exposed to strong chemicals.

Moreover, plastic parts are highly vulnerable to damage due to strong impacts. For instance, a rifle had to be dropped. The damage it can give to an aluminum part would not be that strong, but it would be the other way around for a plastic part.

These are only a few of the many advantages of aluminum military parts over the plastic military parts.

Magnesium has very good mechanical and electrical properties which make the metal ideal for computer parts. Magnesium is also one of the cheaper alternatives to the materials used in computer parts, so it keeps costs for those new laptops lower so that we could actually go out and buy them.

Technology is rapidly developing. It wouldn’t be a surprise if computers double their current capacity in a couple of years.
