Molten specimens of Cd-Zn eutectic alloy (26.50 at.% Zn) were undercooled by the glass-slag technique using glass-forming ZnCl2 as the slag. The microstructure of the solidified samples, weighing about 20 g each, was found to be a function of the undercooling produced. At lower undercoolings the microstructure consisted of supersaturated primary cadmium dendrites co-existing with the eutectic, while at higher coolings duplex structures were observed. Possible causes for the differences in microstructure are discussed with due importance given to the recorded recalescence effects.
