New Member of the REMET Team – Introducing Steve Jones, Sales Director – North America
Our Technical team is continually working on new and innovative solutions to improve our customers processes. In 2018 REMET introduced two new binders to the industry:
ADBOND® QuikBuild™ – Reduce Your Shell Construction Time
This new binder system offers the ability of reducing shell coats by up to 1/3, by making each individual coat thicker. This allows shells to be constructed more quickly without reducing the weight or the strength of the shell. This proprietary formulation is quick drying and works well in a wide range of environmental conditions.

REMASOL® Jus-Dip™ – Just Open the Drum and Dip
This ready-made slurry is already mixed and optimized ready for use. Designed for use in art foundries and teaching environments, Jus-Dip can be used directly from the drum with now preparation. The unique formulation does not need constant stirring or agitation, just a quick stir at the start of each days dipping, to make sure that the slurry is consistent all the way through.

ECOWASH® Plus – New Patten Wash
EcoWash Plus is the latest development in pattern wash from REMET. EcoWash Plus pattern wash is a biodegradable alternative to petroleum based solvents used to clean and etch pattern waxes for the investment casting process. EcoWash Plus is designed to reduce slurry induced surface defects by promoting etching and good prime coat adhesion while emulsifying residual mold release.
