Abstract

Products or assemblies using castings frequently cannot tolerate partic contamination. The casting may be a source of such contamination as a result of entrapped casting residuals or machining fluids and compounds. These contaminants may impair adhesion of subsequent coatings or may induce malfunction of precision devices.
