Uddeholm has introduced thicker sizes of Alumec 89, its high-strength aluminum plate product. The aluminum now comes in sizes up to 16 in. thick. The new size option is in response to the increasing demand for aluminum to produce larger size injection molds for a variety of short-run and prototype applications.

Compared to as-cast aluminum, Alumec 89 has higher compressive strength, hardness, wear resistance, tensile strength and ductility, with no risk of porosity.
