LM- 10 alloy has good mechanical properties especially impact strength. Excellent corrosion resistance. Good machinability can be anodized and colored better than other alloys. LM- 4 alloy is more difficult to die-cast than other alloys. LM- 10 is generally used for cooking utensils and similar applications requiring maximum corrosion resistance and high polished luster.
