Recently, the application of aluminum die cast parts in automobile manufacturing has increased because of the greater demand for automotive weight reduction. For even wider application, it is necessary to reduce manufacturing costs and improve product quality. A material possessing a thermal conductivity 50% higher than the conventional 5% chromium hot work tool steel, AISI-H13, was developed as a die material for high and low pressure die casting machines.
