A383 is a common aluminum die casting alloy with a higher level of silion and lower copper.  This alloy has slightly improved corrosion resistance, resistance to hot cracking, fluidity, and strength at elevated temperatures compared to A380.  Eastern Alloys distributes the A383 alloy, and is available in either partial or full truckloads and in combination with zinc die casting alloys.
