At the industry’s key event the expert for foundry chemicals will present its range of environmentally friendly solutions. ASK Chemicals’ focus on sustainability is closely linked to efficiency, as efficient foundry chemicals and materials make a significant contribution to reducing resources and emissions. Sustainability is not only about protecting the environment, but also addresses economic and social challenges. Featured products at GIFA 2023 help foundries reduce emissions, improve the working environment, and increase economic success.
The company's R&D focus is on developing solutions that increase efficiency, reduce process costs and minimize environmental impact. One way of doing this is by using less harmful raw materials.
Further leverage is provided by the development of solutions that deliver comparable or better performance than standard products with lower input quantities.
Additional approaches are focused on the development of products that show ways to dispense with expensive raw materials, such as special sands, or to reduce the use of other consumables, such as cleaner or release agents. The foundry process can also benefit from the use of high-performance foundry chemicals and materials, for example by reducing rework or eliminating process steps. The company's engineered sand additives represent an effective lever for the optimizations. In the area of binder technology, the latest cold box binder generation ECOCURE BLUE PRO optimizes casting properties while reducing binder and amine consumption, which has a positive impact on efficiency and the environment.
"We strongly believe that sustainability is essential for the long-term success of the foundry industry and are proud to contribute to these important changes," said Dr. Jens Müller, Chief Technology Officer. "We look forward to GIFA 2023 and to sharing our new solutions with the global foundry community."
ASK Chemicals will showcase its sustainable and efficiency-enhancing solutions from June 12 to 16, 2023 at GIFA in Düsseldorf, Germany, in Hall 12, Booth A22.
