Aluminum alloys are great for many applications, but each alloy has different mechanical properties and advantages. In this page, we’ll cover the main properties and advantages of one of our most commonly used alloys: C355 aluminum alloy.
C355 Aluminum Properties
The composition of C355 is primarily aluminum (93%), 1% copper, and 5% silicon. The C355 aluminum alloy also contains around 0.50% magnesium, 0.10% manganese, 0.20% iron, and 0.10% zinc.
Its composition makes it particularly useful for applications that are pressure-sensitive or high-stress environments.
Additional properties of aluminum alloy C355 include:
- 35-50,000 PSI Tensile Strength
- 28-39,000 PSI Yield Strength
- 1 to 3% Elongation
Aluminum C355 alloy is known for being lightweight and easy to work with. Additional advantages include:
- Resistance to Corrosion in High-Temperature Environments
- Less Stress Corrosion Cracking
- Resistance to Salt Exposure, Salt Water, Air Pollution, & Acid Rain
Common Applications for C355 Aluminum
Some common industrial applications for C355 Aluminum are cases for racing car engine parts, connecting rods, crankcases, air compressor fittings, and gear housings.
