This aluminum-silicon alloy is widely used in modern engineering practice for casting purpose containing 10–13% silicon. Also, this alloy is successfully used in marine castings, motorcar and lorry fittings, and engine parts, switch boxes and generally where corrosion resistance and ease of casting are essentials. Because of its high silicon content, it has tendency to drag during machining and cause rapid tool wear. Carbide tipped with large rake angles, low cutting speeds and the use of lubricants and coolants, are recommended.
