Metalcote 24 S

Metalcote 24 S is a newly formulated die-coating which consists of a blend of insulating mineral compounds, water, binder and additives. The coating is suitable for aluminium gravity foundries and finds its best application in coating die cavities when liquid aluminium, after being poured into the mold, starts to solidify. Its new formulation is the result of our experience and of modern technology additives improving wetting and dispersing capabilities of foundry coatings. Recommended for all aluminium alloys poured in gravity dies with regular geometry and casting pattern. Particularly suitable, due to the insulating properties, for feeding heads to delay solidification time and extend feeding effect. Presence of sodium or strontium modifiers in the alloy will not affect its life.
