Hot Tear

Technical Support

Struggling with a specific casting defect or just need general technical support?

  • Jagged crack line through the casting

  • Indicates that the metal filled the mold, but cracked at solidification (the metal shrinks as it solidifies and tears apart due to restriction)

  • Note: some metals are more prone to hot tearing than others
