In this work, the reinforcement in ceramic shell mould (for casting molten metals) treated with organic fiber (rice husk) to strengthen its body was investigated. Several testing procedures and characterization technique were carried out in order to measure the performance of the shell mould. The results show that the reinforced shell mould with organic fiber can withstand the drastic changes in temperature during pouring process without cracking mechanism (compared to the shell mould without reinforcement). The obtained results show that the shell mould with treated organic fiber gave the highest value in MOR, less cracking in SEM observation and failure with the mix mode (highly plastic and less brittle). It was also identified (from performance test) that the reinforcement technique can reduce the coated layering number of the shell mould system
