A first aim of this research project was to introduce the use of only one testing procedure via the differential thermoanalysis (DTA) combined with thermogravimetry (TG) to get characteristic information about a casting powder in question. By this way also fingerprints of the individual casting powders should be established, which are helpful, if quality control systems are taken into account. To deepen the understanding of the DTA/TG curves recorded, supplementary microstructural X-ray analyses were conducted on three continuous casting powders for the production of slabs, as well as on two powders for bloom casting.
