New edition of the VAR list of Aluminium Casting Alloys
After the revision of the aluminium alloy standard EN 1706 “Aluminium and alumin-ium alloys – Castings – Chemical composition and mechanical properties “ in the year 2010, the Verband der Aluminiumrecycling-Industrie (VAR – German Associa-tion of the Aluminium Recycling Industry) has adopted the amendments in a new list of Aluminium Casting Alloys. Where necessary, the also revised EN 1676 “Aluminium and aluminium alloys – Alloyed ingots for remelting – Specifications) is indicated, too.
A free of charge copy of the clearly designed handy sized list of the common alumin-ium alloys for the practical application with information on chemical composition, me-chanical properties, casting properties, general properties, potential uses, examples of application and heat treatment is available at
