Material for aluminium product usually made from aluminiumscrap. Nowadays, the price of aluminium scrap is increased. The idea is now to minimize the cost of production via minimize the weight of the product without changing the form or the shape of product.
Aluminium and metal alloys are common and plenty. In this research , the idea is to combine aluminium with non metals (polymer). In this case Acrylonitrine Butadiene Styrene (ABS) was selected because of its low density and low melting temperature compared with aluminium. However, combining aluminium with ABS as alloys is unexplored off. The process is simple which is, by combining molten aluminium to ABS before casting. The product aluminium-ABS is then tested to study its mechanical properties (hardness and tensile strength and Its microscope.
