Cost Benefits of TriALco Aluminum Products

TriALco aluminum ingot or sow can benefit our customers in a variety of ways, all of which improve your bottom line. TriALco believes the extra care and attention we put into making our alloys will provide you a quality casting.

How TriALco Aluminum can benefit your casting operation:

  • Higher Metallic Recovery
    • Even an increase of 1% metallic recovery can yield approximately $400.00 or more metal per Truckload.
    • An increased metallic recovery will also yield lower foundry scrap, further enhancing a foundry’s bottom line.
  • Cleaner Ingot / Sow
    • A lack of inclusions due to proper degassing.
    • Lowers machining expenses for finished castings.
    • Lower foundry costs due to less pre-casting required treatments, i.e. fluxing, cleaning and degassing.
  • Metallurgical Support
    • To support foundries with specialized situations.
  • Consistency
    • Consistent chemistries from bundle to bundle.
  • Superior Product Traceability
    • All bundles are marked with Bundle Number, Heat Number and Alloy.
  • Bundle Color Coding
    • To help you with your segregation needs.
  • Stable Bundles
    • Our “flat” ingot design allows for bundles to be stacked safely.
    • Increases warehouse efficiency due to a stackable, compact ingot bundle.
    • Also, assists smaller foundries that may have limited storage space.
  • Versatility 
    • The ability to supply a variety of alloys in a single shipment, one stop shopping.
  • Scrap Tolling Programs
    • The ability to recycle a foundry’s casting scrap back into their specification alloy.
