We have received a number of questions about the strength and durability of Alumaloy on our aluminum repair forum. We understand that people have concerns and we would like to address them. In an effort to do this we are going to provide some of the metallurgical specs of Alumaloy here as well as an explanation of what they mean to you. You will note we might compare the properties of Alumaloy with the properties of aluminum. We take pride in our product and stand behind it 100%. It is our hope that this information will reinforce your confidence in our product and us.
Tensile strength: 39,000 PSI
That means 39,000 pounds per square inch is required to tear it apart the meld of two pieces joined with Alumaloy.
Compression strength: 60,000 to 75,000 PSI
A meld with Alumaloy can withstand between 60,000 and 75,000 pounds per square inch of crushing power before breaking apart.
When Alumaloy is melded to other aluminum it becomes just as easy to shape as the rest of the material it is bonded with.
Electrical conductivity: Good
Alumaloy has a relative electrical conductivity to aluminum so shouldn’t impede any electrical repairs it is put to.
Thermal Conductivity: Excellent
Heat transfer for Alumaloy is consistent with aluminum and will maintain thermal qualities present before the repair.
Corrosion penetration: Excellent
Aluminum is resistant to corrosion and Alumaloy shares that property. Melds made with it will not corrode over time unless the aluminum itself does.
