Aluminium Alloy Question


Recommended Posts

 

Dear Moderators: please forgove me if I am posting this in wrong forum. Please move it to correct forum then

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hello

 

My friend has told me that certain car parts are made from Aluminium Alloy that contains Aluminium, Magnesium and Copper. 

This was once called Duraluminium and was used in plane industry. 

Would anyone here perhaps know what part in the car is made with alloy that contains at last 90% Aluminium 4-5% Copper 4-5% Magnesium?

 

I don't need the parts, I want alloy itself. 

I live in United Kingom and horrible ''Health & Safety'' laws here make it almost impossible to buy anytthing that is considered unusual.

I just wish to know what series of Aluminium Alloy is closest to Dural alloy in composition and which car parts are made from it. 

Then I try buying those parts for alloy itself. 

 

Thank You in Advance

      I seen someone else posted about this radio here https://www.dodgeintrepid.net/10-general-discussion/88425-pinout-what-each-wire-does-radio-need-find-out.html , i parted this out of a 2002 dodge grand caravan sport, the thread above me he had the same radio except it was parted out of a 2000 car, the wires arnt the same color as described on that fourm, and no matter where i look i cant find anything that has the same exact wire color, im assuming they changed the harness after 2000. The colors for my radio are on the grey harness red grey, blue pink, brown grey, light/baby blue grey, orange brown, orange yellow, green brown, green blue. on the black harness its White purple, yellow grey, grey, green yellow, green, green, dark blue, green orange, grey orange. then it has a metal silver cable looking thing attached to it which is seprate from each harness. hope you guys can help me out, date codes 1852 its just hard to find exact diagrams for this, if you cant help because this harness has odd colors, could you link a wiring harness that might be more common? thanks again.

      Alloy steel refers to the steel grade formed by purposefully adding one or more alloy elements on the basis of carbon steel in order to improve some properties of steel.
      Alloying elements have great influence on the properties of steel. For example, adding chromium into carbon steel can improve the strength, hardness and corrosion resistance of steel. Adding nickel can not only improve the strength of steel, but also reduce its toughness. Adding silicon can improve the strength, hardness, fatigue strength and corrosion resistance of steel. The simultaneous use of several alloying elements has a more significant effect on the properties of steel than a single alloy element.
      Only after heat treatment can the alloy steel achieve the purpose of improving its mechanical properties.
      There are many kinds of alloy steels, which can be roughly divided into the following categories according to their uses: alloy structural steels, alloy tool steels, special performance steels.
      Alloy structural steels include low alloy structural steels, alloy carburizing steels and alloy quenched and tempered steels.
      Low-alloy structural steels: steels based on low-carbon steels with a small amount of alloy elements (3% - 5%); these steels have a strength of 10% - 30% higher than carbon steels with the same carbon content, and have good plasticity, toughness and weldability. Because of its simplicity in smelting, its production cost is similar to that of carbon steel, it is widely used to make various machine parts and engineering components, such as frame longitudinal beam, cross beam, engine lug, etc., and substituting low alloy structural steel for carbon structural steel can save steel, reduce weight and use reliably. Commonly used steel species are 12MnV, 16Mn and so on.
      Alloy carburized steel: parts made of alloy carburized steel, after heat treatment, not only have higher surface hardness and wear resistance, but also can greatly improve the strength and toughness of the center of the parts, thereby improving the ability to resist impact loads; automotive parts withstand high speed, heavy load, strong impact and severe friction, such as piston pins, gears, shafts Parts and important bolts are made of alloy carburized steel after heat treatment.
      Alloy quenched and tempered steel: Alloy quenched and tempered steel refers to the steel used after quenched and tempered, with high strength and toughness. If quenched and tempered and then quenched, the wear resistance of parts surface can be improved. It is often used to manufacture parts bearing heavy load and impact load. Such as machine tool spindle, automobile half shaft, connecting rod, steering knuckle, etc.
      Other alloy steels and special performance steels: commonly used steel alloy spring steel, rolling bearing steel, alloy tool steel, weathering steel (good atmospheric corrosion resistance), stainless steel, wear-resistant steel, heat-resistant steel.
