ASK Chemicals expands its product portfolio with the addition of pre-coated sand that is used in the shell molding process. The new Askroning pre-coated sands are characterised by their efficient and economical use.
Askroning pre-coated moulding sand for the shell moulding process is especially suitable for the production of filigree components in all commonly available casting alloys. The pre-coated sands from ASK Chemicals have the advantage of high dimensional accuracy, with good hot and cold bending strengths and good disintegration and decoring abilities. A further advantage is its nearly infinitely long bench life and storage possibilities.
Tailor-made pre-coated sands
As a reliable partner to the foundry industry, ASK Chemicals develops tailor-made solutions for its customers and their specific applications. Askroning pre-coated sands are specially adapted to the individual processes of customers and in-view of their parameters like AFS number, loss on ignition, and hot and cold bending strength.
Special sands for special requirements
Certain process requirements can necessitate the use of special sands. These special sands, compared to quartz sand, are characterised by other specific physical-thermal properties, and in particular, by the significantly lower thermal expansion behavior in certain temperature ranges. Thanks to the company’s access to a large variety of special sands, ASK Chemicals is able to offer individually developed and adapted Askroning pre-coated sand blends for specific requirements.
“Our Askroning products represent a valuable supplement to our product portfolio. A special advantage that has to be highlighted is the efficient and economical use of these new pre-coated sands. ASK Chemicals is constantly seeking to combine technical performance and economical efficiency when developing products for its customers,” comments Jörg Brotzki, Executive Vice President Europe at ASK Chemicals.
