Most parameters that control the solidification of castings, and consequently, microstructure and mechanical properties, are: chemical composition, liquid metal treatment, cooling rate and temperature gradient. In this work, characterization of the influence of water flow rate, casting speed, alloying element and pull distance on tensile strength, elongation percentage and microstructure of continuous cast copper alloys has been carried out. A significant different in tensile strength, elongation percentage and grain structure has been investigated and it was also found that these parameters could improve the physical and mechanical properties of samples. As a particular example, water flow rate could improve the elongation of samples from 10% to 25%.
