Characteristics of new generation water and alcohol coatings and their impact on the quality of the casting surface layer


The increasing requirements of casting users regarding the dimensional accuracy and surface roughness of castings force the manufacturers, i.e. foundries, to use protective coatings on moulds and cores. Coatings are applied in order to protect the casting against the burn-on defects (mould material adhering to the casting surface), to reduce the surface roughness of castings, and to facilitate casting removal from the mould cavity. This paper presents the results of studies of multi-component coatings of the new generation made in accordance with the Polish Standard PN-H-11011:1997. Tests included the density of coatings, the content of dry matter, the sedimentation index and the amount of gas emitted by the coating. Melts were made to determine the impact of coating on the quality of the external surface of steel castings.
