Paper Title:
Die-Casting Capabilities of Heat Resistant Mg-Al-Ca Alloys
  Abstract

Various amounts of Ca were added to AZ91D magnesium alloy, and their effects on the die-casting abilities were investigated. It was observed that fluidity as die filling ability tends to decrease by Ca additions except for about 2%Ca. This reduction of fluidity by Ca was more significant at high superheats probably due to the high affinity between Ca and oxygen. Contrary to expectation, hot cracking resistance was found to increase by Ca additions. High Ca alloys showed some die-sticking tendency. However, the tendency was not observed below 2%Ca.
