CERAKARB™

Nanotechnology based Carbon Additives

The current situation of green sand moulding in ferrous foundries leaves quite a lot to chance; the lack of understanding of the process hampers the productivity of foundries, where the rejection rates hover from 2% to 6%. Reducing this rejection rate, and increasing the lifespan of sand, even by a single percentage point can result in massive savings for your foundry.

To help you achieve these goals, we have a range of products which are tailor made for use in Green Sand molding in Ferrous Foundries. The main objective of these products, which are available to you under the brand CERAKARB™, is to impart a better surface finish on the castings.

CERAKARB™ is a revolutionary new technology that combines scientifically selected nanomaterials, anti-scabbing agents, carbon, and a proprietary blend that form a ceramic surface where molten metal meets sand. This ensures a non-wetting barrier between the sand and the molten metal providing a superior surface finish.

CERAKARB™ Technology

  • Revolutionary new technology using "nano" materials
  • Ceramic nano-materials blended with anti-scabbing agents, carbon in a proprietary blend
  • Ceramic Surface is formed where molten metal meets sand
  • Non-wetting barrier between the molten metal and sand ensuring a superior surface finish

CERAKARB™ Advantages

  • Eliminates Metal penetration and Burn-on defects
  • Reduced scabbing, hot-tear and hot-crack casting defects
  • Improved collapsibility and reduced shake out time
  • Reduced sand loss / no lumping during shake out. Better sand reclamation.
  • Improved refractoriness and permeability
  • Reduced fettling and shot blasting time
