Clinton Aluminum AlumoldĀ® 1-500 Forged
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy

Material Notes: Alumold 1-500 Forged is a high quality, high strength aluminum alloy intended for the plastic forming industry and for other tooling applications. With its high strength and surface hardness it is suitable for polishing and texturing and is weldable. It is supplied in the forged, heat treated, quenched, cold compressed and aged condition. Alumold 1-500 Forged possesses better than normal mechanical properties in all sizes, excellent thermal conductivity and very good machinability together with good stability.
