Are Investment Castings Porous?

Yes and no. Shrinkage porosity is always a risk in any metal casting process however investment casting minimizes the formation of porosity. Our team at Barron Industries eliminates the possibility of defects by developing high-quality mold designs using our Solid Cast™ software. Additionally, every component we produce is thoroughly tested using our NADCAP-certified non-destructive testing system.
