Aluminum machining chips have been successfully foamed using processes analogous to both the “Alporas” and “Formgrip” methods. The chips provide large fractions of both clustered and dispersed oxide films to the liquid, which enhances its “foamability.” Through additional alloying with Mg and “melt conditioning,” fragmentation and wetting of the oxides occurs and foams with low densities, good pore structures, and good stability are obtained.
