Fortal® Aluminum (up to 8″)

Fortal_(black)

This exclusive 7000 series aluminum alloy offers high-strength, lightweight, exceptional machinability. Low-residual stress and modulus of elasticity prevent premature deformation. Its uniform cross-section is harder than mild steel. The thermal conductivity being greater than steel along with excellent polishing characteristics, make Fortal a good choice for plastic mold and other tooling uses.
