Paper Title:
Castability of some Magnesium Alloys in a Novel Castability Die
  Abstract

This paper reports on the results of the castability of three MRI alloys (153A, 153M and 230D). MRI153A was found to cast best, with castings produced rated with a quality approaching AZ91. MRI230D produced the next best castings, whilst MRI153M showed the worst castability across a range of conditions. However, these alloys showed a tendency to build-up oxide in the melt transfer tube leading to melt transfer problems. This was particularly severe in MRI230D.
