Date posted: 17th April 2018

EWash™ is the latest development in pattern wash from Remet. EWash pattern wash is a biodegradable alternative to petroleum based solvents used to clean and etch pattern waxes for the investment casting process. EWash is designed to reduce slurry induced surface defects by promoting etching and good prime coat adhesion while emulsifying residual mould release.

Key Features of EWash

EWash offers a wide range of benefits to your foundry, including:

  • Rapid Etching – In neat concentration EWash can etch a pattern in just 10 seconds
  • Superior Prime Coat Adhesion – The high effectiveness of the surface etch means an increased prime coat adhesion performance
  • Optimized Cleaning Performance – EWash’s proprietary formulation provides tailored mould release cleaner as well as excellent rinsing and drying performance

Why Use a Pattern Wash?

Good pattern wash practices are essential for pattern making in the investment casting foundry. Promoting adherence of the slurry onto the wax surface, removing any residual mould release agents preventing lifting or buckling of the prime coat and subsequent bulging on the surface of castings.

  • Economical to use
  • Low evaporation rates
  • Non-flammable, but combustible
  • 100% water soluble
  • Has no special storage or handling requirement, except adequate ventilation
