INTRODUCTION: DESCRIPTION: FOUNDRY METAL CLEANERS

In any Sand Casting Process it is important to keep the core boxes clean and free of any residue to insure a proper sand casting is prepared with the appropriate dimensions. Foundry Metal Cleaners are typically used for this application. They break down any residue resin so that it can be easily removed from the cavities of the core boxes.

Description: Foundry Metal Cleaners

Our Foundry Metal Cleaners are solvent based products that can be used during in-line operations to reduce any down time for cleaning operations.
As such, our Foundry Metal Cleaners help to improve your process by reducing down time, increasing tooling life and improving core quality. For more persistent resins, we have versions of our Foundry Metal Cleaners which are amine activated to increase their effectiveness.
