What is a "Chill Mark"?


(1996)

Dear sirs,

Could anyone explain to me what is a "Chill mark" ?

Best Regards,

Don't know what material you're dealing with, but chill marks are usually where two metal fronts meet and do not re-fuse completely.

Dear Rick, We encounter "chill marks" in die castings or tin/lead castings from rubber molds. It is when the metal is cast too cold and doesn't flow properly leaving usually a cylindrical mark with an almost rough surface. David

Hi, gentlemen. From Greg and David's description, this sounds like what diecasters often call a "cold shut".
