Hi Gary, I can't tell you any more, I thought someone on the list would 
know ? Having worked in manufacturing and non ferrous foundries all of 
my working life, I can only say that the quality of the casting appears 
excellent, no sign of any gas porosity in the machined surfaces which 
can happen if the alloy isn't properly prepared before casting or the 
runner and riser system is badly designed and doesn't feed molten metal 
back into the casting as it cools and shrinks. Overall it appears to be 
a quality product, but I can't add anything else at this stage.
