While aluminum would require a lost foam molding media that has a high conductivity and low thermal expansion, magnesium would require a low conductivity media (to retain more melt heat) with low thermal expansion properties.
Rethinking foam molding One well-known difficulty in foam injection molding is producing parts with smooth unblemished surfaces.
Provided in pelletized masterbatches, XO-230 is designed for structural foam molding applications in which maximum density reduction is desired, and it can also be used for sink-mark removal and warp reduction in injection molding applications.
Except for the large captive lost foam foundries (such as Saturn), foam molding is considered by the lost foam community to be too difficult a "science" to be performed by jobbing foundries.
