Signature Aluminum

Services: Cast House

Uniquely positioned…

to provide high quality, ISO/TS 16949 Certified specialty alloys in log and billet form. Capable of meeting minimum order quantities and in
short lead-times.

Signature Aluminum Canada Inc. produces a large selection of standard and specialized aluminum alloy billets and logs, which can be produced in various diameters and lengths upon request. Each billet is cast using state-of-the-art in-line degassing, filtration, and mold technology. Alloy chemistry is tailored to offer our customers the best combination of extrudability, surface finish, and mechanical properties; all attributes which carry through to the bottom line.

Specially developed homogenizing and cooling practices produce a starting stock that performs well under a wide range of preheating and extruding conditions. Quality extrusions obviously start with the highest quality aluminum alloys. Experienced and dedicated people, along with the most modern technologies, come together at Signature Aluminum to produce products of the highest quality. Signature Aluminum Canada, Inc.'s manufacturing process utilizes the latest in casting technologies:

• Ceramic foam filtration
• Novelis® Jet Cleaner™ aluminum degassing

Footnotes for Table

1 Composition in percent maximum unless shown as a range or a minimum.

2 The source of this table is aluminum standards and data, published by the aluminum association biannually, and the "registration record of aluminum association designations and chemical composition limits for wrought aluminum alloys," the aluminum association.

3 Analyses is required for elements other than aluminum for which specific limits are shown.  Analysis for other elements is made when their presence is suspected to be, or in the course of routine analysis is indicated to be, in excess of the specified limit.

4 The aluminum content for unalloyed aluminum not made by a refining process is the difference between 100% and the sum of all other metallic elements present in amounts of 0.010% or more, each expressed to the second decimal before determining the sum.

5 Bus conductors.

6 Boron 0.06% maximum.

7 Electric conductors.  Formerly designated ec.

8 Vanadium plus titanium 0.02% maximum; boron 0.05% maximum; gallium 0.03%

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES (METRIC)

The following table lists minimum yield strength, minimum ultimate tensile strength, and minimum elongation values. Yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, and elongation property values are determined with standard test method ASTM B557. This table also includes hardness screening criteria values, indicated in parentheses reference. As applicable, minimum electrical conductivity values are also specified.
