873 Cast Alloys

Because cast alloys are produced near-net shape directly from the molten state, they inherit a microstructure that cannot be modified by the thermomechanical processing used with cast and wrought (ingot) material [12]. Additionally, a number of defects can occur in castings, such as porosity, which can degrade mechanical properties.
