Eruptions in Die-Cast Parts

Eruptions in Die-Cast Parts


Eruptions in Die-Cast Parts, Occasional, random eruptions and/or pock marks.




Occasional, random eruptions and/or pock marks.


Probable Causes


Microcavities containing air in the metal. The air expands during curing, erupting (outgassing) and leaving either a small eruption or a crater.


Suggested Solutions


  1. Force the eruptions prior to coating by preheating the parts to a temperature above the cure temperature. If no blisters appear, let parts cool, then coat and cure. If blisters still appear, advise your customer.
  2. Select coating with lower cure temperature.
