Monotectic alloys can be classified based on the difference between the critical temperature and the monotectic temperature. This article begins with a schematic illustration of monotectic reaction in copper-lead system. It discusses the solidification structures of monotectics and illustrates the monotectic solidification for low-dome alloys. The forming mechanism of the banded structure of copper-lead alloy in upward directional solidification is also described.
