Abstract

Material properties in cast condition are largely influenced by its structure. Here you can influence, for example the speed of solidification, or metallurgical operation. In the case of aluminum alloys, casting into moulds with a low cooling effect of vaccination is commonly used material. Submitted work deals with the influence of the cooling effect of common foundry moulds achieved microstructure of casting alloys on the base of Al-Si. Used moulding materials were mixed with inorganic and organic binders. Other types of materials have been significantly different cooling effects – metal and plaster form.

Keywords: aluminum alloy, cooling effect, microstructure, casting
