Increased research devoted to the foundry arts has resulted in a greater understanding of the factors essential in producing high quality castings. One outgrowth of these studies has been the development of premium quality aluminum castings. The procedures used for the production of premium quality castings are reviewed, and the improvements in properties that result from adequate attention to these procedures are described.
