Aluminum cerium alloys are a recently developed class of aluminum alloys that exhibit excellent mechanical properties at both room and elevated temperature. Their high chemical and thermal stability is inherent to the alloy thanks to intermetallic phases formed directly during solidification into nanoscale eutectic and cellular distributions. These properties combine to enable the use of aluminum in many new applications; however, when industry considers the use of new alloys, recyclability is a key factor for investigation. Here, results on the compatibility of Al-Ce with existing recycled aluminum waste streams will be presented. Another factor in broad adoption of a new alloy is its ability to be die-cast, since it accounts for a majority of the modern aluminum casting industry. The compatibility of Al-Ce with die-casting determined from a lab-scale and industrial scale pilot trial will be discussed.
