An unknown type of aluminum oxide inclusions found in a recycled high-pressure diecasting alloy were characterized. The oxide was found to be amorphous and contained a minor amount of phosphorus and a trace amount of calcium. Transmission electron microscopy was used to determine the crystal structure of the aluminum oxide inclusions.
