2015: Another New Metal Alloy for Castings

One of the latest metal alloys to be introduced for OEM manufactured parts that operate at extremely high temperature is Hi-Sil Moly. This new ductile iron alloy is an iron metal base composed with silicon and molybdenum.

There are four enhanced properties of Hi-Sil Moly ductile iron. Numerous industries are already beginning to benefit and leveraging the use of this new alloy such as: automotive, aircraft, oil drilling, and heavy construction equipment. The improved properties of Hi-Sil Moly ductile iron are opening up new doors within the manufacturing sector by elevating temperature tensile strength, increasing stress-rupture strength, maximizing oxidation resistance and strengthening structural stability.

Temperature Tensile Strength

Normal high strength steel begins to drastically reduce its rigidness after reaching 600°F. Hi-Sol Moly effectively doubles this temperature range up to 1200-1500°F.

Stress-Rupture Strength

Molybdenum lead prolongs the sudden failure of the metal under an extreme work load or pressure.

Oxidation Resistance

A silicon layer prevents metal lost through the formation of the oxide rich scale caused by various environmental conditions.

Structural Stability

An improved bounce-back capability of the metal allowing it to be retested or re-stressed again.

Every industry makes improvements; advances in technology produce better materials and increase the cost effectiveness of manufacturing schedules. Why settle for a development rate of a single manufacturer. Partnering with a quality manufacturing sourcing agent such as Alloy Products Distribution, you are able to harness the entire global manufacturing industry. This allows today’s U.S. businesses to leverage the vast experience available worldwide, guaranteeing top quality components, with the lowest competitive price.

Through Alloy Products Distribution you gain many more additional advantages that include locating the right process for your OEM part, qualifying the best manufacturer for the job, negotiating prices, overseeing the tooling and factory production, managing multiple levels of quality inspection, production financing, insurance, customs clearance and final delivery. All this comes before you even pay a single dollar.
