Article Review: "Avoiding (Green Sand Foundry) Coating Related Defects" - Part 2

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Jul 9, 2019 12:30:08 PM

By Jay Morrison, Carpenter Brothers (Mequon, Wisconsin)

Applying a refractory coating to molds and cores can be a useful step to improve surface finish, control the heat transfer characteristics and thus the microstructure in the casting, improve core venting and prevent certain defects in the casting. As with any process step, proper techniques in applying the coating are paramount in achieving the desired effects and avoiding the cause of new quality issues. Metalcasters can apply coatings to their sand molds in four main ways, all with varying advantages and disadvantages.
