Nothing is Impossible with Inorganic Binders

Aug. 18, 2014

In their well-received report at WFC 2014 – “Nothing is Impossible: Advancements in the Field of Inorganic Binder Systems” — a team of researchers and product developers at ASK Chemicals described how some of the difficulties working with inorganic binder systems have promoted misconceptions about their effectiveness, and the possibilities for working with them successfully.

Among the misconceptions they address are inorganic cores’ “lower dimensional accuracy,” “higher core fracture,” propensity to wetting, unsuitability for regeneration, high sand accumulation on casting surfaces, reduced shakeout performance, unsuitability for iron casting.

These images parallel and illustrate their research, which can be read in two installments, here and here.
