FOUNDRY  

METCOTE - 144

 

A ready mixed flammable coating designed for use in the manufacture of iron castings.

METCOTE-144 is produced under factory-controlled conditions using high quality graphite as the refractory base.

HOW TO USE

Always remix the coating thoroughly before use especially after prolonged storage or transportation and then check the Baume reading. A mechanical stirrer or a hand plunger may be used. The coating will be stable for a long period after mixing.

The consistency of the product as supplied is suitable for application by brush or swab but for flooding, spraying or dipping it may be diluted as necessary with pure Isopropanol alcohol or in this case with water.

After application of the coating it can be ignited in order to bum off the solvent if ignited with IPA. The mould may then be closed and metal can be poured immediately. As an alternative to burning off the solvent or if the coating is diluted with water, it may be allowed to evaporate over several hours after which the resultant coating layer will be firmly bonded.

A second coat may be applied if required once the fir coat is completely dry.
