Standard aluminum castings have good strength properties but very little ductility. This lack of ductility is a hindrance when some forming of the casting would ease fabrication or be artistically beneficial. To address this constraint, Alloy Casting has developed 3 grades of bendable aluminum castings that exhibit good formability for use in furniture, sculptures, belly rails, balcony rails, or spiral staircases. Each alloy, EC, EC5 and CA5 progresses from most bendable and lowest strength to least bendable and highest strength. Even the lowest bendable alloy, CA5, shows much more ductility than the standard alloys normally used.
