Whether for drying by air, oven or microwave, or the combined use of different drying methods, ASK Chemicals special adhesives meet any requirement.
A special highlight of our portfolio is the ZIP STIK series. Products from the series are low VOC adhesives suitable for bonding most cold box and no bake molds cores/molds. Two versions are available depending on the adhesive thickness required.
ASK also has water-based inorganic options for bonding cold box and no bake cores/molds.
When premium strength is required for critical applications, ASK Chemicals offers its OMEGASET structural adhesive line. A two-part system, this structural adhesive is blended together using specialized application equipment leading to a full cure strength of ≈3000 PSI within a wide range of curing times between 3 to 35 minutes depending on the need. OMEGASET, once cured, is not thermoplastic. It can be used for core setting or mold closure, coated with a refractory coating and dried in an over without losing strength.
If you work with optical inspection systems, we recommend ASKOBOND HM PO UV. The material contains a UV marker for the detection of the adhesive by means of optical inspection systems. ASKOBOND HM PO is not available in US, Canada, Mexico and Brazil.
ASKOBOND HM PO products from the series are suitable for bonding cold box cores, resol/CO2 cores, hot curing shells and molds etc., as well as for bonding fireclay bricks. The adhesive offers a long processing time and good adhesion, high heat resistance as well as excellent oxidation and color stability of the adhesive melt. For the processing of hot-melt adhesives, we can also recommend processing equipment such as automatic systems and handguns, which are adapted to the respective application and the desired scope of bonding. The processing temperature should be 160-180° C. The minimum temperature of materials and environment should not fall below 18°C.
