The aluminium alloy wheel usually has better heat conductivity, anti-corrosive properties and is much lighter than the steel wheel making it the best option for passenger vehicles. Aluminium alloy wheels are manufactured using casting and forging process. Less weight on the wheel creates less stress on the tire, and so a balance is created. Aluminium and alloy wheels are largely corrosion-resistant, but prone to galvanic corrosion. They are available in attractive bare-metal finishes because of their anti-corrosive properties which eliminates any need for paint. They also enhance performance by manipulating handling and suspension and add a brilliant appearance to the vehicle.
They are homogeneous hybrid casts, and manufactured in many types of alloy wheels, such as forged aluminium, one-piece and two-piece cast alloy wheels etc. Out of all the types, forged aluminium alloys are most expensive wheels. AdTech offer degassing units, CFF filtering units, hot top casting parts and others for aluminium alloy wheel casting.
