In the slush casting process, metal is poured into a slush-casting mold, aloowed time to solidify along the mold wall only, and then poured out. The resulting "hollow" casting is then ejected and cooled. Its primary use is for decorative castings not subjected to high stress conditions, such as lamp bases.
The Slush-cast alloy is a high-purity purpose-engineered product manufactured by Eastern Alloys. This alloy was developed to provide a high fluidity castign material capable of producing a good surface definition when cast in a metal permanent mold or rubber molds. It contacins approximately 5% aluminum and 95% zinc giving it a very short freezing range and good fluidity.
