Refractory Mold and Core Coatings

The refractory coatings, designed and manufactured by Çukurova Kimya with long-term experience and engineering ability prevent interactions that will be occurred at the sand-metal interface. It provides excellent surface quality by creating a refractory barrier. As a result of this advantage, labor costs are decreased and the production rate is increased.

Physical interaction and chemical reactions occurred in a short time at the sand-metal interface while casting. This phenomena adversely affects the surface quality of the casting. The application of mold and core coating is a reliable solution in order to reduce and prevent surface defects on cast parts.

● The coating should have been as a suspension to allow mixing.

● Easy to apply in the process.

● Perfect interaction with the sand mold surface.

● After the drying process, the coating layer on the surface of the part should not tend to blister, crack and dust.

● The coating should be sufficient refractory properties against molten metal.

● Gas permeability should be suitable.

● Physical, rheological and chemical properties should be maintained within the recommended

● Refractory materials should be determined according to casting alloys

● Selection of application method and appropriate types of equipment

● Selection of refractory coating form (ready to use, premix, paste)

● Alcohol or water-based refractory coatings

● Selection of drying method

● Packing types (Y-container, jerrican, drum)

Alcohol-based refractory coatings with advanced refractory properties and formulation that prevent casting surface defects are developed by Çukurova Kimya.

Refractory coating types that developed for different types of surface applications provide mold-metal interface protection.

Ease of Use

Alcohol-based coating provides rapid drying advantages with ignition in terms of various applications. This type of coating group does not require an oven and has a low investment cost due to optimum operation area.

Quick Drying

Alcohol-based refractory coatings have advantages, especially in hand molding applications. Casting defect related to high moisture content is reduced. Thanks to the special formulations, the soot that will occur as a result of burning on the coating surfaces is at the lowest level.

Freezing Resistance

Refractory coatings are resistant to freezing due to special solvent content to strong climate regions that have low temperatures. The freezing point of alcohol-based refractory coatings is lower than water-based refractory coatings.

Low-Cost Equipment

Alcohol-based refractory coatings applications do not require high electric and equipment costs for the drying process. These coatings provide an advantage in large-sized mold applications.

Water-based refractory coatings with advanced refractory properties and formulation that prevent casting surface defects are developed by Çukurova Kimya.

These refractory coatings are eco-friendly foundry consumables that consider both employee health and respect for the environment.

Lower Purchasing Costs

Water-based refractory coatings have the lowest purchasing costs because of the solvent type. Therefore these coatings reduce production costs to users in long-term investments.

Large Volume & High-Speed Production Process

Water-based coatings minimize processing time and labor costs in high-volume serial casting with drying furnaces. It offers a controllable oven process and temperature settings.

Non-Flammable Solvent

No risk of flash, because it does not contain flammable solvents. Unlike alcohol-based coatings, these coatings are not ignited. They are preferred due to their health and safety occupation.

Transport and storage of water-based refractory coatings are safer than alcohol-based refractory coatings.

Respect to Human and Environment

Water-based refractory coatings minimize risks in terms of human health due to low gas release values and non-toxic ingredients. It is preferred in eco-friendly foundry applications.
