Composition of AlSc2

Scandium 2%
Aluminum Balance

Aluminum Scandium 2% is utilized for rapid and accurate alloying into a variety of casting type and wrought type aluminum alloy melts. The addition of scandium provides the following benefits in those alloys:

  • Supporting the alloy grain refinement during casting and solidification
  • Improving weldabilty of aluminum alloys while minimizing hot cracking of welds
  • Increasing yield and ultimate tensile strength in 2xxx, 5xxx and 7xxx alloy series
  • Increasing recrystallization of heat-treatable aluminum alloys during hot working

KBM Affilips produces AlSc2 master alloys in notched waffle ingot form weighing roughly 7 kg.

Applications of AlSc2

The typical application areas of AlSc2 are:

  • Aircrafts
  • Bicycle frames
  • Baseball bats
  • Handguns
  • Golf clubs
  • Other demanding applications
