Scabs

Scabs are caused by the steel splashing from the stool at the start of the pour and sticking to the mold walls. In the case of a leaky nozzle, or a fanflaring shaped stream, the steel may also touch and stick to the mold sides and, in this case, a curtain-type of scab may be formed higher up in the ingot.
