Sand & Binders

The final quality of the metal casting is the results of a tremendous amount of controlled parameters inside the foundry workshop. On a daily basis, parameters such as pouring temperature, sand quality, molding conditions, etc. are leveraged by metal casters to balance quality versus the yield of production, which have usually an opposite trend.The molding sand and the sand used for core making have a direct impact on the casting quality, and thus on the efficiency of production. The use of...
