Steel is the most versatile of the structural engineering materials, so more grades of steel are available for casting than any other type of alloy. The casting of steel presents a number special problems due mainly to the high casting temperature, typically 1550-1600°C, the volume shrinkage that occurs on solidification and the susceptibility of molten steel to oxide formation. Steel castings range in size from a few grams to hundreds of tonnes. Steel castings are often used in critical situations where optimum mechanical properties are essential so that freedom from casting defects is particularly important.

Foseco offers a wide range of foundry consumables and equipment to meet these requirments.
