Current and future foundry technology is, and will be focused on the production castings with ever more complex geometries and near net shape becoming of greater importance. The increasing technical demands for thin walled castings exert a high thermal and mechanical loading to the mold during production. High quality bentonite bonded molding sands are able to offer the optimum solution for mold stability, providing not only the requisite mechanical properties but the necessary flexibility for the production of castings that comply with the ever stringent demands for quality and productivity. The ability to reclaim these sands and additives in an increasingly environmentally conscious society makes the application of this technology attractive economically due to a low and sustainable cost.
Molding sand binders from Imerys Metalcasting Solutions represent state of the art technology. High thermal durability and strength of our bentonite binders combine to enable the production of castings having a low rejection, the low consumption and minimum refreshment of the molding sand offering strong ecological compatibility. Our range of binders ensures we are able to provide the right technical solution for every application.
With Imerys you are guaranteed a consistent and high quality product due to our constant drive for effective resource management of our raw materials, the acquisition of new reserves ensuring long term availability of materials and future partnerships with our current and prospective clients.
