Green Sand Partings
Green Sand Parting molds are made with a moist sand, in which the moisture is present at the time metal is poured into the mold. Green sand molds are used more extensively than any other mold material and may be used for making small, medium, and large castings. These molds are relatively inexpensive to produce, since the basic material is readily available.
Simple, even some complex, changes may be made in the pattern design, and thus in the mold design, at very little cost. Green sand is adapted easily and quickly to mechanical and automated production methods.
As such, it is important that the dimensions of the Green Sand mold be precise. Our Green Sand Parting Compounds allow for excellent release of Green Sand molds from patterns while keeping their structural integrity.
