SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® has been engineered specifically for foundries to provide the best performance in various types of castings. Aluminum, gray and ductile iron, steel, copper, magnesium and other metals can be made using most any resin systems including phenolic urethanes, phenolic ester, furan, sodium silicate, bentonite clays, shell resins and alkyd oils.
SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® outperforms specialty sands and at the same time offers distinct economic advantages.
SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® has a lower thermal expansion, resulting in higher precision and accuracy of castings while also leading to lower scrap cost and lower cost to correct inaccuracies. Its greater flowability increases the ability to produce thin wall castings and minimizes casting mass.
With lower density than other specialty media, SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® requires less product (by weight) to produce an equal volume of cores or molds. It also provides lower cost per cubic foot of product used. Also, the strength and durability of
SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® enhances reclamation and reduces media consumption.
SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND® is inert and contain no quartz silica.
SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND®, versus silica sand, has a lower thermal expansion, resulting in higher precision and accuracy of castings while also leading to lower scrap cost and cost to correct inaccuracies. It reduces the occurrence of casting defects such as veining, penetration and burn-on, resulting in lower cleaning cost. Its low thermal expansion and greater flow properties increase the ability to produce thin wall, complex castings and minimize casting mass.
The high roundness and sphericity of SPHEREOX CERAMIC FOUNDRY SAND®, enhance flow properties. It's durability resists breakdown and media consumption while promoting reclamation thus lowering the cost associated with transportation, disposal and replacement.
