Abstract

Metallic foams are materials with the broad applicability in many different areas of human activity (e.g. automotive industry, building industry, medicine, design, etc.). These metallic materials contain artificially created pores in their structure. These pores give them specific properties such as large rigidity at low density, high thermal conductivity, capability to absorb energy, etc.The paper deals with an optimization of procedure for production of cast metallic foams with use of casting technology (infiltration method), which ensures rapid and economically feasible method for production of shaped components. In the experimental part conditions of casting of metallic foams with irregular inner structure and open pores made of ferrous and non-ferrous alloys by use of various types of filler material (precursors) were studied.

Keywords: Metallic foam, casting, precursor, infiltration method
