The microstructure of superheated as-cast A357 alloy has been analysed to study the solidification structures of α-Al dendrites, eutectic Si particles and intermetallic compounds at different sections of the specimen. The primary dendritic arms are broken to globular and spherical shaped of α-Al dendrites due to the thermal effect of superheating thermal treatment. Differential scanning calorimetry showed faster formation of endothermic peaks of superheated as-cast A357 alloy relatively also believed to be attributed by superheating thermal treatment.
