Disadvantages of porosity in diecasting. Diecasting is a method of molding molten metal, plastic and resin into whatever shape you desire. In order to do this, a machine will need to pour the molten substance into a container and then force it inside the mold until it cools down. The substance will eventually harden and take the form of the mold it is in. Die casting is commonly used in making toys, instruments, costumes and even costumes. However, there are certain problems in which the products become porous which contributes a lot to its brittleness. This is commonly known as die cast porosity, an unwanted result brought about by air pockets and void space inside the molded material. Products with porosity typically are considered to be of low standard and poor in quality. Here are some disadvantages of die casting porosity.

Air pockets inside a die cast product; can cause weakness of the material. The structure becomes less stable because the density of the particles melded together is not balanced due to small voids of space within. There are also times when diecasting porosity makes the product look less appealing to the buyer or consumer, due to the impression that porosity is a result of low quality machine and materials. Chances of infiltration are also high due to an imbalance in the density of the material. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to reduce the chances of cast die porosity. However, it would also mean an increase in your expense, but it would also increase the chance of more consumers because of your high grade product materials.
