Enhanced Binder

Polymer Enhanced Colloidal Silica Binder for Investment Casting

 

Remet’s enhanced investment casting binders, include a polymer addition that improves the performance of our colloidal Silica range.

The polymer addition is able to further increase the green strength and fired strength of a ceramic shell. In addition to the formation of stronger bonds, the polymer also accelerates the Colloidal Silica’s gelation. Remet’s enhanced investment casting binders speed up processing time as well as reduce the overall number of coats required to produce a ceramic shell.

 In addition to the above, enhanced binder systems can also provide the following benefits to the investment casting foundry:

  • Buckle, lifting and cracking can be reduced or eliminated on the primary coat
  • Improved adhesion of primary coat to wax
  • Improved permeability because of added porosity when polymer is burnt out
  • Better stucco adhesion
  • Slurry rheology and draining are improved. The slurry coating is more even and consistent
  • More tolerant of unfavourable environmental conditions (humidity, temperature, air movement)

Remet’s enhanced investment casting binders, enable the casting of more intricate parts and are an essential for the production of premium rate investment castings.

Remet supplies our proprietary polymer range ADBOND®, both premixed with our REMASOL® colloidal silica and as a separate concentrate. In addition to this we also supply enhanced Ludox® colloidal silica.

For more information, please ensure you contact one of Remet’s Technical Sales Managers for advice on selecting a grade that meets your specific investment casting requirements.

ADBOND® QUIKSET® Concentrate

Product Information

ADBOND® Quikset Concentrate is a proprietary polymer formulation that significantly enhances the performance properties of REMASOL® SP-BV™ and LP-BV ™ colloidal silica based back up slurries. A shell system containing ADBOND® Quikset Concentrate with either REMASOL® colloidal silica is well suited for decreasing dry time between dips. ADBOND® Quikset was developed to provide up to 20% higher green shell strength with fast processing speed compared to competing polymer binder additives.

KEY PRODUCT FEATURES:

  • Equivalent hot strength with comparable fired strength versus standard binders.
  • Proprietary additive decreases drying times between dips.
  •  Improvement in green strength, especially at very short dry time intervals (1 h)
  •  Compatible with all standard refractories.
  •  Formulated for long term stability with REMASOL SP-BV and LP-BV colloidal silica.
  •  Water based system that is EPA (USA) and REACh (EU) compliant.

BENEFITS:

  • Reduced processing times vs. other colloidal silica binder systems with proper air movement.
  • Dry times equaling or surpassing air dried ethyl silicate.
  • Fast dry time between dips increases shell room production throughput.
  • Higher green strength can reduce shell cracking during shell dewaxing.
  • Ideally suited for patterns with cores, blind holes and other difficult to dry areas of shell.

REMASOL® ADBOND® Series

Product Information

Enhanced binders for investment casting

 

Remet’s REMASOL® ADBOND® range is a group of water based, colloidal silica binders engineered, to have performance enhanced properties.

Specifically developed to improve on the desirable aspects of a water based shell system, REMASOL® ADBOND® binders are able to;

  • Generate a higher green strength at a quicker rate
  • Flow at an increased rate
  • Provide greater stucco adhesion and permeability

These superior characteristics, coupled with their excellent stability, allow the REMASOL® ADBOND® range to reduce surface defects.

REMASOL® ADBOND® binders speed up processing between dip coats through an accelerated gelation during the dry phase. It’s improved rheology characteristics, adds to the fast processing, allowing it to drain quicker as well as providing a more uniform coating.  Whilst the increased green strength has a positive impact on both mold handling and dewaxing.
