Abstract: It is demonstrated experimentally that by using the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research Rheo Casting system and high pressure die casting it is possible to semi-solid process and cast into a shape unmodified Al–Si binary eutectic without a solidification temperature range. Silicon leads the aluminium coupled crystal growth subjected to convection by induction during thermal arrest. The semi-solid structure during thermal arrest is captured after rheo-processing and casting.
