Approximately 500 people attended the 14th World Conference for Investment Casting which ended in Paris April 19th. Imerys Refractory Minerals for Foundry Application took this opportunity to present its new organization and 4 new products.
GreenShell+ is a combination of ceramic materials preventing the formation of crystalline silica throughout the casting process, reducing significantly the risk of exposure to hazardous dust for foundry operators and allowing the easy disposal of the shell.
Teco-Sil B1+ and Teco-Sil Hybrid +, both allow reducing the number of layers and to speed up the shell building process. The first is a fused silica-based blend and the second an aluminosilicate-amorphous silica blend.
Treibacher Alodur WRG IC ESR is a modified aluminium-oxide flour designed as a primary coat for casting and Ni-based super alloys. Its easy shell removal quality facilitates casting cleaning.
Imerys Refractory Minerals for Foundry Applications would like to thank its visitors for their interest, feedback and support, which is essential to move forward in the foundry industry as pointed out by Ing. Franz Bernasconi when receiving the 2016 EICF Life achievement award.
