Aluminum Cast Plate MIC-6 is a blend of the most desirable features of many individual metals and is known for its stability and consistency between plates. Because of its cast granular structure and stress relieving properties, it has superior flatness and dimensional tolerances on the thickness which makes it popular for tooling and base plates.
This alloy is 20% stronger than 1100 because manganese has been added and has good strength and is light weight. 3003 aluminum is well-suited to outdoor and harsh environment applications due to its durability and corrosion resistance. It has excellent workability and is used for spinning and stamping applications.
6063 an aluminum alloy, with magnesium and silicon as the alloying elements, is the most common alloy used for aluminum extrusion. Heat treatable and weldable, 6063 allows complex shapes to be formed with very smooth surfaces for a variety of exterior and interior architectural applications.
