Coating Technology

Coatings from ASK Chemicals are much more than a simple layer between sand and molten metal. They largely determine the surface quality of the casting and systematically remedy casting defects. While all our coating systems are primarily characterized by the fact that they make for excellent casting results, minor fettling work and increased productivity and efficiency in the pouring process, the use of water-based coatings provides other unbeatable advantages. No solvents are used for the dilution, which is why water-based coatings are emission-free, do not pose a risk to employees and reduce the cost of dilution. Foundries can therefore dispense with installing Ex equipment and need not adopt any extra fire safety measures. Finally, storage volumes are unlimited with water-based coatings. Our water-based coatings produce significantly more convincing casting results than conventional coatings.

At ASK Chemicals, we provide innovation-driven research through our product development approach. We focus specifically on market trends and customer demands because of the increasingly complex requirements our industry is facing: reduced emissions, casting defect prevention, cost-efficiency, as well as overall casting quality. Such requirements necessitate more than just strong partnerships and outstanding technologies; rather, we believe that first-class research and development that focuses on efficiency, environmentally friendly solutions and key performance parameters are essential.

In addition, we offer our customers a holistic approach that goes well beyond merely offering products. Our application technology and technical sales specialists in particular always assess the entire production process as a whole. Only this approach allows for customer-specific solutions that are precisely tailored to meet customer requirements.

Finally, our specialists’ expertise is complemented by a broad range of services that offers our customers real added value. For example, our design services can be systematically deployed to optimize the process as a whole – from conceptual development to actual series production – thereby offering important savings and process improvement to our customers.
