Abstract

Although past efforts in universities, government laboratories and industry have tried many materials in an attempt to find a mould suitable for casting titanium alloys, no ceramic mould that is completely resistant to titanium has been developed. Because much of this work was conducted more than 30 years ago and because much data are recorded in difficult-to-find government reports, investigators can and have unknowingly repeated past experiments. This review, therefore, serves as a reference for future mould developers and will hopefully encourage renewed interest in a problem which, if solved, could have a tremendous impact on the titanium casting industry.
