Advantages of our high performance Coatings

Coatings developed by ASK Chemicals are far more than a pure barrier between sand and metal. They are high performance systems and determine in a decisive way the accuracy and surface quality of the casted parts and thus specifically eliminate typical casting defects.

Whereas all our coating systems are characterized by excellent casting results, low cleaning and fettling efforts as well as productivity and efficiency in the casting process, our water-based coatings even offer further and more advantages:

  • No limit in storing capacity
  • Adjusted processing characteristics
  • No further expenses for dilution ( solvents)
  • Emission – free
  • Improved casting surfaces
  • No pollution and contamination danger for employees by solvents
  • No need of further safety measures concerning fire protection
  • No need of installation of explosion hazardous equipment

Foundries can save a lot by switching from an alcohol-based to a (zirconium-free) water-based coating

The change from alcohol-based to water-based coating offers considerable cost reduction potential and other interesting advantages for large castings. If the foundry also dispenses with zirconium in the coating formulation, savings are achieved in two ways. All details are summarized in our article.
