Thin-wall castings present special challenges both in preventing misruns, cold-shuts and other related casting defects, and in providing acceptable physical and metallurgical properties.
Today, however, the coating is considered indispensable in improving casting quality by controlling heat transfer to avoid misruns and cold-shuts, as well as to promote directional solidification to enhance internal soundness.
