    Aluminum alloy die castings are generally used in electronics, motors and other industries, which have perfect performance and great toughness, and are an important part of mechanical parts.

    Aluminum alloy is a mix of aluminum and other metals which impart added strength and stiffness to a casting. Aluminum is subject to fatigue cracking  if not alloyed with steel, chrome, copper,  zinc, titanium and or other metals and silicon.

    Probably a failure to be very specific in the wording. Many people don't realize that aluminum is typically an alloy just as all steel is an alloy of iron.

    Aluminum might be pure aluminum. Usually, not a desirable state to use.

    Aluminum alloy is aluminum alloyed with various materials to enhance the metals characteristics (strength, corrosion resistance, weldability).

    However, aluminum could be an alloyed version. You need to read up on the details of the material. Alloyed castings are generally 3xx.0, 5xx.0, and 7xx.0 series.

    There are various ways of casting which change the characteristics,  gas retention is one characteristic.
