Application Fields

The cold box process is used in automotive iron and aluminum casting in particular.

Iron casting:

  • Engine casting
  • High productivity (high reactivity)
  • High process reliability (sand bench life, core box cleanliness, etc.)
  • High efficiency (low binder and amine consumption)
  • Brake disk casting
  • High productivity (short cycle time)
  • High dimensional stability (during core extraction and after furnace drying)
  • Turbocharger casting
  • High thermal stability
  • Clean casting surface
  • Hydraulic casting
  • High precision (high deformation stability)
  • High thermal stability
  • High compatibility with special minerals and additives

Aluminum casting:

  • Cylinder head casting
  • Low gas and condensate formation
  • High dimensional stability
  • Low development of smoke
  • Excellent disintegration
  • Engine block casting
  • Low gas and condensate formation
  • High dimensional stability
  • Low development of smoke
  • Excellent disintegration
