The Rusal Advantage

Additive Manufacturing is said to enable a new era of sustainable manufacturing due to its digital, on-demand nature and its ability to produce parts optimized for efficiency and weight.

But what about the materials that go into making those parts?  Not all aluminum is created equal.  That’s a fact we at Rusal America are proud of.  Because every ton of aluminum we produce via our ALLOW brand of low-carbon footprint aluminum emits less than 1/4th of the global industry average greenhouse emissions.*

In fact, Rusal is the world’s largest producer of low-carbon footprint aluminum. And all of our AM powders are made exclusively from ALLOW feedstock. Learn more about how Rusal is leading the way in sustainable aluminum through ALLOW at allow.rusal.com.

Our mission:

Our alloys

All of our AM powders are optimized for flowability, packability, and final part quality in Powder Bed Fusion applications. However, customized PSDs are available upon request to suit other technologies such as Binder Jetting or Directed Energy Deposition, or to meet an in-house specification.

Rusal America’s powder segment is focused primarily on Additive Manufacturing. But Rusal supplies many other industries with aluminum and aluminum alloy powders globally. See the full portfolio here and let us know how we can support you.


Common Alloys

 Traditional alloys at exceptional prices

RS-300

AlSi10Mg

 A widely used casting alloy with good strength.

RS-312

AlSi12

 A traditional eutectic-based casting
 alloy with good strength.

RS-330

AlSi9Cu3

 A copper-doped casting alloy with improved strength but lower ductility than AlSi10Mg.

RS-356

AlSi7Mg

A casting alloy with good strength and better ductility than AlSi10Mg.

Specialty Alloys

Enabling new design possibilities.
Designed for AM.

RS-230

Al-Cu

A hot-crack resistant 2xxx series alloy
for applications up to 250 oC.

RS-320

Al-Si-Cu

Ideal for casting substitutions.  Higher strength than AlSi10Mg.

RS-390

Al-Si-Ni

Inspired by traditional piston alloys.  Suitable up to 250 oC.

RS-507

Al-Mg

High strength without expensive additives.  Good corrosion resistance.  Ideal for structural applications.

RS-553

Al-Mg-Sc

A corrosion resistant alloy with very high strength.  Scandium optimization maintains comparable strength while reducing material cost relative to other Al-Sc AM alloys.

Don’t see an alloy that’s right for your application?  Let us know your requirements and we can design it for you.  All of our specialty alloys are designed and developed at the Rusal Light Metals & Technology Institute (LMTI), a research facility dedicated solely to the study of aluminum and its alloys in all of its product forms, where we are always working on the next generation of Al alloys to solve tomorrow’s challenges.

    Technical support

    At Rusal America we are here to support your manufacturing initiatives.  That means we are here to work with your existing AM capabilities and manufacturing supply chain rather than trying to reshape it.  Our primary focus is to provide you with the powders you need to ensure your applications succeed.  But we’re not done just because powder’s been delivered.  Our US-based AM team is here to collaborate with your in-house experts to make sure you succeed with our materials in the shortest amount of time possible.

    Whether you’re new to AM, new to aluminum, or just want a second set of eyes, we’re here to back you up.

    Our AM team has years of experience working on Aluminum AM from process and product development to design for AM, production, quality control, powder handling, and more.
