Water-Based Parting Compound for Green Sand Metalcasting Foundry
Hill & Griffith has developed and patented a unique water-based liquid parting which provides improved odor characteristics and reduced flammability for foundry molding applications. Flammability has long been a concern in automatic molding operations and with the water-based formula, this concern can be minimized or eliminated.
Another important water-based benefit is the inherent low odor level, which makes this product more acceptable to operating personnel. In addition to the low odor levels, AQUA PART® II minimizes airborne hydrocarbon emissions in the workplace enhancing the usability of this product.
The uniqueness of AQUA PART® II formula provides a durable film when applied on the patterns resulting in fewer sprays per draw with clean releases and minimum build-up.
For improved performance and cost reduction, it is recommended that AQUA PART® II be applied with air-activated nozzles. Tests have shown that using this type equipment provides continuous uniform spray patterns resulting in improved coverage and reduced usage.
