Aluminum Scandium Alloys Applications:
1. Used for minor aerospace industry components. The common content is 2% scandium. The addition of scandium to aluminum limits the excessive grain growth that occurs in the heat-affected zone of welded aluminum components. Scandium can significantly increase strength and reduce grain size.
2. Used in some sports equipment, including baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, as well as bicycle frames and related components.
3. Used in bearing assembly, ballast, casting, step soldering, and radiation shielding.
Packaging of Aluminum Scandium Alloys:
Typical and custom packaging is available. Aluminum Scandium Alloys are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
