This paper describes some of the problems solved in the development of a mold-making process in which the molds are coated using a 2mm wire arc-spraying system. A water solution release agent has been chosen to meet industry standards and requirements. The composition of backup materials was chosen based on compression strength testing. The material selected has high ultimate compression strength and high thermal conductivity and can be readily incorporated in the mold-making process.
