Abstract: Traditional alloys are composed of approximately one to two major metal elements, such as aluminum, and titanium, etc. For the purpose of casting molds, new research has led to the creation of high-entropy (HE) alloys, that encompass five or more major metal elements. This research led to the discovery of lower thermal properties in HE alloys, portraying them as potential coatings in the management of casting molds. Low thermally conductive castings are required for the proper fabrication of thin and large area castings. The low thermally conductive nature of the HE alloys, allows the liquid to maintain its temperature, while slowing down the solidification process.
