Product Description
Fusible Alloys

AIM is a leading supplier of fusible alloys for a broad range of Tool & Die applications.

AIM fusible alloys are low melting temperature alloys that contain bismuth, lead, tin, cadmium or indium. AIM's fusible alloys are utilized in a broad variety of tool & die applications, including casting, tube bending, machining parts for soft metal dies, fixturing, anchoring parts, toggle dies and supporting castings and interrupted cuts.

These silvery white alloys expand only ~3.3% of their volume when changing from liquid to solid form, which makes these alloys ideal for many industrial applications. AIM fusible alloys are rarely consumed in an operation and therefore can be remelted and used multiple times.

These alloys are normally used in gravity casting but also can be used in other casting methods.

AIM 58: lens blocking; proof casting; fusible element in safety devices; anchoring parts for machining; sealing adjustment screws; holding jet engine blades for machining and broaching; filler for supporting castings in interrupted cuts.
