A356 is cast aluminum alloy that consists of 92.05% aluminum, 7% silicon, 0.2% iron, 0.2% copper, 0.35% magnesium, 0.1% zinc and 0.1% manganese. This alloy is typically heat treated to improve its strength characteristics. A356 is commonly used to make many parts, including structural, machine, high velocity blowers, impellers, housings, pump components, tools, frames, and bases.
