At the 3rd Molding Materials Forum of the Association of German Foundrymen (VDG), the latest developments in the foundry industry will be discussed. ASK Chemicals will present how new, lithium-free additives can be used in iron and aluminum casting in a resource-saving manner while maintaining the same casting quality.
From exhaust regulations and flying taxes to a ban on plastic bags - the aspect of environmental protection has arrived in politics and society. But not only end consumers need to implement sustainable processes – foundries are also affected by this development.
With the joint project of Magma GmbH and ASK Chemicals on binder decomposition in sand cores and the associated gas formation, users will be provided with validated data for quantitative prediction of process-relevant effects for ASK products.
ASK Chemicals is launching a new additive that makes it possible to reduce the application of release agents and increase tool availability through longer cleaning intervals. The new hybrid additive was developed especially for use in the Cold Box process.
Ask Chemicals has developed a zirconium-free coating technology with MIRATEC TC. As a result, users are less dependent on rising raw material prices and benefit from a product that is in no way inferior to the performance of zirconium coatings.
