    About the closest Al alloy is 4032 based on the Si and Fe content, but some of the other elements like Cr and Cu seem a bit high.

    The other close ones would be 4047 and 4147.

    If its cast, it comes close to A339.0 and A339.1

    Alloy numbers are AA numbers.

    With Si that high the first thing I thought about was some form of a casting alloy.
