Two extrudates made of AlSi11 alloy have been produced in the co-extrusion process: solid billet and machining chips from the rolling process. The microstructure was observed, mechanical properties were determined on the basis of the 1-axial stretch test, and the fatigue tests were performed to determine the fatigue resistance of the AlSi11 alloy.
