Centrifugally cast composite parts  - LBI


Centrifugally cast composite parts made up with a matrix in silicon-aluminum alloy and SiC reinforcement elements: Silicon Carbide particles. Characteristics of an ALUSiC® piece: - SiC reinforcement ratio ranging from 30 to 60% (in volume) depending on the application. - Perfect volume distribution of the SiC particles. Physical properties: - Low density (d ≤ 2.95). - Very low expansion coefficient (alpha < 8x10-6 with 60% SiC). - High thermal conductivity (> 150W/m/°K). Mechanical properties: - Very high stiffness (Proof stress > 185x10-6 N/mm² with 60% SiC). - Exceptional wear resistance. - Good mechanical properties under hot conditions (up to 300° C / 572° F). The non-reinforced zone has the characteristics of basic alloy.
