Rusal America launches new range of sustainable, high-performance aluminium 3D printing powders


Vertically integrated aluminium company Rusal America has expanded its aluminium product offerings to include additive manufacturing (AM) powders.

The new powders portfolio, which includes 100% pre-alloyed and fully metallic powders, excluding any ceramic- or nano-inclusions, is comprised of four traditional Al-Si based casting alloys and five specialty alloys designed for use in the aerospace and automotive industries, and more broadly in general industry.

The company’s new powder range is atomised exclusively from ALLOW feedstock, Rusal’s leading low-carbon footprint aluminium brand, and comes with a 3rd-party certified carbon certificate to promote transparency and accountability.

Brian Hesse, President and CEO of Rusal America, said the company’s expanded portfolio makes high-performance solutions available to more AM applications than ever before through holistic alloy design that optimises composition to maximise properties and printability while minimising material cost.

“From primary aluminium and foundry alloys to billets and wire rod, Rusal America is a trusted supplier with a reputation for delivering unmatched high-quality, low-carbon aluminium products backed by customer and technical support that is second to none,” Mr Hesse said.

“We are excited to deliver the same to customers new and existing through our new line of innovative AM powder alloys.”
