Investment Casting Characteristic #7 – Heat Treated

Nov 14, 2017


Parts made using the investment casting process can be heat treated to achieve the desired characteristics for an extensive range of needs. Heat treating casting can expand or alter their mechanical properties and produce higher levels of corrosion and abrasion resistance, as well as hardness of the parts. It can also improve plasticity and reduce the internal stress of finished castings, enhancing quality and performance. Expert metallurgists and foundry professionals are required to produce the desired results.
