ACP 5080R

Cast plate with fine grain structure, low porosity and exceptional machining properties

Fine grain structure, low porosity and excellent machining characteristics all define the cost saving and value added attributes of every block and plate of ACP 5080R. Outstanding industry leading material dimensional stability along with good mechanical and physical properties and an extraordinary range of sizes allow users of ACP 5080R to utilize alimex’s material and knowledge expertise at its finest. Being an industry innovator and leader, alimex was the first to introduce aluminum cast plate (ACP 5080R) manufactured to AA 5083 alloy specifications. We take pride in every plate and block produced!

Sawn low-tension, aluminium cast slabs, mold making plates and cuts.

ACP 5080R was designed especially for application fields which require optimal structural strength. A fine-grained, pore-free aluminium cast structure characterizes the rough cut ACP 5080R aluminium cast slabs, plates and cuts. A specific heat treatment additionally homogenizes the material and removing tension. The result is a low-tension material with well-balanced mechanical characteristics. ACP 5080R can be ordered in exceptional measurements: aluminium cast plates are available in any gauge from 0.375″ to 43.30″ and a unit weight of up to 55,000 lb’s.

For ACP 5080R in width of up to 110.00″ please visit the product page of GIANT Dimensions.

[alimex delivers the aluminum cast slabs, plates and cuts not only as mold making plates. ACP 5080R with its fine-grained aluminum cast structure is also a material of high relevance in other industries.]
