BrushCAST high strength casting alloys provide peak strength and hardness greater than many steels, but with thermal conductivity similar to that of aluminum and up to five times that of steel. Additionally these alloys offer good electrical conductivity, excellent wear and galling resistance, and the highest accuracy in replicating fine detail in cast components
