No-nitrogen, low in water, thermosetting, non-reportable formaldehyde and phenol formulation.
HA International has recently introduced Enviroset 3D Jet Resin, a low-viscosity thermosetting furan resin that has been specially manufactured for use in all 3D printers for forming sand cores and moulds. It is suitable for use with all types of metal.
As noted by the developer, this furan resin contains no nitrogen; is a low-water, non-reportable formaldehyde and phenol formulation. It achieves low viscosity and high-tensile strength in the treated sand.
Among the benefits attributed to Enviroset 3D Jet Resin are increased productivity in performance, as the resin helps 3D printer heads to last longer, reduces labour requirements, as the printed moulds and cores may be cleaned more quickly and lowers overall operating costs, as the new formulation is less expensive than comparable products.
“As foundries move toward 3D printing they will appreciate a more productive resin at less cost,” according to HA International president Michael Feehan.
“Additionally, this low-odour resin can be used in all 3D sand printers to produce castings made with all alloys.”
