FOUNDRY  

ZIRCOTE - 256

 

A ready mixed flammable coating designed for use in the manufacture of heavy section iron and steel castings, mainly for CO2 Process.

ZIRCOTE-256 is produced under factory-controlled conditions using high quality Zircon and ceramics 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 read. A mechanical stirrer or a hand plunger may he 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 spraying or dipping it may be diluted as necessary with Grade 1 Isopropanol.

After application of the coating it should be ignited in order to burn off the solvent. The mould may then be closed and metal can be poured immediately. As an alternative to burning off the solvent, it may be allowed to evaporate over several hours after which the resultant coating layer will be firmly bonded. The Coating is particularly suited for CO2 process.

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