Abstract : A process and apparatus for continuously casting a castable material to a thickness of 10 to 40 mils. A molten material is first spread onto a spreading roller to a uniform thickness and then transferred to a quenching roller whereon the material is cooled until dimensionally stable. The apparatus may be employed to continuously cast thin sheet, platelets, wire etc. The materials castable by this process and apparatus include metals, alloys, glasses, thermoplastic materials and metalloids.
