Figure 2. This is the inclusion map of sample 2. Worst fields for thin and heavy inclusions of each types are identified by the colored bounding boxes to facilitate the reviewing process.


This document showcase the ability of Clemex Inclusion Rating (CIR) software to discriminate, categorize, measure and rate the inclusions found in the submitted samples. The results are reported according to ASTM E45, JIS G 0555 and DIN K.
