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.
