In order to develop of mold powder for high speed slab type continuous casting, viscosity of molten flux and melting rate are investigated. The results can be summarized as follows;
1) Viscosity of molten flux is estimated from the equation as a function of anion cation interaction parameter and net work parameter.
2) Melting rate is estimated from the equation as a function of carbon content per unit volume and carbonate content.
3) The improved mold powder succeeded in casting at 5m/min speed.
