Hello Roy,

You can access NADCA (North American Die Casting Association) at
They are an excellant source of the information you are seeking.
They also have a Cd from their Diecasting Development Council called :
Searchable Technical Information CD (Version 1.0) which contains the
information you are looking for.
I'm going to try to attach a page from this CD with the information .

Have fun
