PRODUCT

SILCOX is a breakdown agent in liquid form for C02 moulds and cores.

FUNCTION

Decomposes at high temperatures and creates voids n the moulds/cores thereby facilitating easy breakdown and faster casting Knockout.

MIXING PROCEDURE

  • Mix dry sand for one minute.

  • Add Silcox 2% for cores and 1.5% for moulds and wet mix for two minutes.

  • Add Sodium Siliicate (5 to 6%) and mix for two minutes.

  • Discharge.

ADVANTAGES

  • Easy knockout enables replacement of Alkyd No Bake Process.

  • Increases sand bench life and prevents drying out of sand particularly in hot climates.

  • Facilitates cleaner casting strip.

  • Increases productivity.

SALIENT FEATURES

  • Being Invert-Sugar based, the Breakdown is most complete and effective.

  • Consumption of CO2 gas is only 0.50 kg per 100 kgs of SAND thereby offering substantial savings.

  • Reduction of Sodium Silicate from 6% to S% for the same as gassed STRENGTH.

  • In case of large heavy castings, the moulds and cores can be removed easily within 25% of the normal period.

  • Typical applications include Valve/Bonnet Castings, Pump Casings, Earth-moving equipments, Ni-hard rings. Balls and general Engineering Castings.

  • No other process can offer the flexibility, productivity and Value for Money (VFM) as the CO2 process with good breakdown properties. SILCOX fulfills this vacuum to the benefit of the FOUNDRYMAN.
