Rusal America expands line of sustainable, high-performance aluminium powders

January 13, 2021

Rusal America, Rye Brook, New York, USA, has expanded its aluminium product offerings to include a range of aluminium powders suitable for Additive Manufacturing applications.

Its new powders portfolio is comprised of four traditional Al-Si based casting alloys and five specialty alloys designed for use in the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as more broadly in general industry.

The portfolio includes 100% pre-alloyed and fully metallic powders that exclude any ceramic- or nano-inclusions. Its RS-230 grade is a heat-crack resistant Al-Cu alloy with high-strength stability up to 250°C. The RS-553 grade is a novel aerospace Al-Mg-Sc alloy, with optimised scandium content, that delivers comparable properties at a lower cost than similar Al-Sc AM alloys.

The powders are atomised from the company’s ALLOW aluminium feedstock, said to have a carbon footprint 75% lower than the global industry average (smelter scope 1 & 2 emissions). All powders come with a third-party certified carbon certificate to promote transparency and accountability.

“From primary aluminium and foundry alloys to billets and wire rod, Rusal America is a trusted supplier with a reputation for delivering unmatched high-quality, low-carbon aluminium products backed by customer and technical support that is second to none,” stated C. Brian Hesse, president and CEO of Rusal America.

“We are excited to deliver the same to customers new and existing through our new line of innovative AM powder alloys,” added Hesse.
