Title

Thermal degradation of foamed polymer patterns in the lost foam casting process

Abstract

"The thermal decomposition products and kinetic behavior of foam patterns constructed with expanded polystyrene (EPS) and expanded polystyrene/polymethylmethacrylate (EPS/PMMA) copolymers were evaluated in support of the lost foam casting (LFC) process development. This research specifically investigated the effects of high temperature and radiant heat transfer to the foamed polymer patterns that are exposed to the molten metal during the steel casting process"--Abstract, leaf iii.
