From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers.
Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the Al-Si alloy.
What is Aluminium-Silicon Alloy?
Silicon-aluminum alloy is a binary alloy composed of silicon and aluminum, which can maintain the excellent properties of silicon and aluminum respectively.
Silicon is good in metal alloys used for casting. Because it increases the fluidity of the melt, reduces the melting temperature, reduces the shrinkage associated with solidification, and is very cheap as a raw material. Silicon also has a low density (2.34g/cm3), which may be an advantage in reducing the total weight of casting parts. The solubility of silicon in aluminum is very low; therefore, it precipitates in the form of almost pure silicon, which is very hard, thus improving wear resistance. The content of silicon and aluminum is quite rich, and the preparation technology of silicon powder is mature and the cost is low; in addition, this material has no pollution to the environment and is harmless to the human body.
The density of Si-Al alloy is between 2.4g/cm3 and 2.7g/cm3, and the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) is between 7-20ppm/℃. The density and thermal expansion coefficient of Si-Al alloy decrease significantly with the increase of silicon content. At the same time, Si-Al alloy also has excellent properties such as good thermal conductivity, high specific strength and stiffness, good coating with gold, silver, copper and nickel, weldable with substrate, easy precision machining and so on.
Silicon-aluminum alloy is a promising electronic packaging material, especially in high-tech fields such as aerospace, space technology and portable electronic devices.
What Kinds of Silicon-Aluminum Alloys are Available?
The important silicon-aluminum alloy in industry can be divided into four categories:
Hypoeutectic silicon aluminum alloy. The silicon content is between 9% and 12%.
Eutectic silicon aluminum alloy. The silicon content is 11% to 13%.
Hypereutectic silicon aluminum alloy. The silicon content is 15% to 20%.
High silicon aluminum alloy. The content of silicon is more than 22%, mainly 25-70%, up to 80%.
What is Aluminium-Silicon Alloy Used For?
High silicon-aluminum alloy material has excellent tribological properties and can be used as an advanced lightweight wear-resistant material for all kinds of transportation tools, power machinery, machine tools and special fasteners.
High silicon-aluminum alloy is widely used as cylinder liner, piston, rotor and brake disc of automobile engine because of its low specific gravity, light weight, good thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion coefficient, volume stability, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and so on.
It can also be used for high power integrated circuit packaging.
Heat sink parts.
Al-Si alloy is a strong compound deoxidizer. Replacing pure aluminum in the steelmaking process can improve the utilization rate of deoxidizer, purify molten steel and improve the quality of steel.
What Series is an Aluminium Silicon Alloy?
What is Silumin?
Silumin is a group of lightweight and high strength aluminum alloys based on aluminum-silicon system. Aluminum-silicon alloys usually contain 3% to 25% silicon. Casting is the main use of Al-Si alloys, but they can also be used in rapid solidification process and powder metallurgy. Alloys used in powder metallurgy rather than casting may contain more silicon, up to 50%. Silumin has high corrosion resistance, making it suitable for wet environments.

Recently, Rosneft announced that a large oil deposit has been discovered in Bochao Lahai, with reserves equivalent to 82 million tons of oil. The discovery benefited from oil drilling in the Medinskova Landsky area. Rosneft pointed out that the discovery proves the great oil potential of the Timano-Bechula region, which will be the basis for the company to continue to research and develop the region.
In addition, Russian billionaire Vladimir Potanin, the largest shareholder of Norilsk Nickel, said recently that he was prepared to discuss the merger of Norilsk Nickel and aluminum giant Rusal.
"We have received a proposal from Rusal management to discuss a merger with Norilsk Nickel as an alternative to extending the shareholder agreement," Potanin said in an interview with Russia's RBC TV channel. I sent a letter confirming that we agreed to initiate discussions with Rusal on a merger. "
Potanin owns about 35 per cent of Norilsk Nickel. Norilsk Nickel is a major producer of nickel and copper and the world's largest palladium miner. Norilsk Nickel and Rusal had a market capitalization of $49 billion and $15 billion, respectively, as of Monday local time, according to Refinitiv Eikon.
