• The Synergistic Effects of Refractory Coatings and Sand Additives in Controlling Veining, Metal Penetration and Surface Finish in PUCB Systems

    The development of more effective engineered sand additives and refractory coatings has significantly helped to reduce or eliminate casting defects such as veining, metal penetration and surface finish for castings made using chemically-bonded molds/cores. The goal here is to systematically understand/quantify the contribution that each of these materials has during... more
