Abstract Some crystallographic observations of primary silicon and unmodified eutectic silicon in aluminium-silicon alloys are summarized and used to support the theory that sodium modification is due to the poisoning of active growth centres. The implications of endogenous growth in unmodified aluminium-silicon sand castings are explored and mechanisms are proposed for the flake-fibre transition in chill-modified and sodium-modified alloys.
