Abstract

Basically, permeability of ceramic shell mould system play an important role in minimizing the casting defects in most investment casting shell. The mould has to be sufficiently permeable to obtain complete mould filling during casting process. Mould fill can be improved by increasing the open porosity that definitely will increase permeability ceramic shell mould. The elimination of rice husk volatile elements has contributed to the increment of pore structure that provides a great deal of connected pathways through the ceramic shell which directly will increase the permeability of the ceramic shell mould during casting process. Indeed, the rice husk fibers additions increase the permeability after firing by a factor 3 compared to the standard shell mould system (without fiber) that makes its an excellent alternative in producing higher permeable ceramic shell system.
