{New Post} Porosity in the Die Casting Process

Hello Kinetic Die Casting Blogger,

{New Post} Porosity in the Die Casting Process

The steel die cavity is sprayed with a liquid release agent to prevent the molten metal from sticking to the steel cavity. Much like the cook will spray a pan before baking a cake. The spray dissipates into steam because the die is very hot. Porosity is natural in the Die Casting Process. The molten metal is squirted at a very fast speed and under extreme pressure into the die. It is like a running water hose with a thumb on the nozzle. The metal is moving very rapidly as it is forcibly injected into a steel die cavity, the metal picks up voids and air bubbles from the steam and the turbulence of the injection. The metal is squeezed into the die with a piston to evacuate or to remove and compress most of the voids and air pockets. Those voids and air pockets are called die casting porosity. It is a natural occurrence in the production of die casting parts. To read more about die casting porosity, review our web page:
