The new formulation maintains the same properties, characteristics, and performance in additively manufactured parts, helping ensure existing EOS Aluminium AlSi10Mg customers do not need to requalify applications. Specifications for EOS Aluminium AlSi10Mg are as follows:

  • Chemical composition standard: AlSi10Mg
  • Ultimate tensile strength: 460 MPa
  • Yield strength: 245 MPa
  • Elongation at breaks: 5%
  • Good thermal and electrical conductivity with possibility of heat treatment

“Our commitment to offering responsible products that support AM production is growing to include our metal materials. We are striving to create carbon-footprint transparency for our premium metal materials. These externally verified numbers are also providing transparency to our customers by including these materials in our Carbon Calculator, furthering sustainability initiatives for both our customers and for EOS,” stated Sophia Heyl, product specialist, metal materials at EOS.
