You would think that this question is easy, but it not always is that easy. Cast aluminum looks so similar to many metals like zinc and die cast that it is not always that easy to tell the difference…so how do you know what it is? Well first things first, cast aluminum is much more common then those other metals so you can bet that you will have normal cast aluminum if you are scrapping items like grills and many engine parts. Cast aluminum will look like it was poured into a mold…or “casted.”
