Instructions for use

A typical mixing ratio is 1-1.5% of resin to the amount of sand. The suitable amount of catalyst is 30-50% of the resin amount used.
The final mould strength depends on the binder, dosage, sand quality and curing conditions. A higher binder dosage is recommended for core moulding.
Dosing affects the hardening speed. A higher catalyst amount speeds up the curing process, even though to some extent this will reduce the final strength. Catalyst overdose (over 60%) will result in a longer stripping time.
The sand must be free from alkaline impurities, preferably washed, cooled and dry. The sand temperature must not exceed 35 °C, otherwise the sand will cure in the mixer or at too early a stage. The higher the sand temperature, the less catalyst is needed and correspondingly, the lower the sand temperature, the higher dose of catalyst is needed. No-bake resin can be used as such with neutral and acidic sand grades (quartz, chromite, zircon etc.).

Environment and safety

NOTE! When mixed together, resin-catalyst compound generates an intensive, heat-producing, explosion-like reaction. DO NOT MIX WITHOUT SAND! Should this happen, immediately add plenty of water to the mixture. Ensure sufficient ventilation in the working premises.
Avoid unnecessary skin contact with and exposure to the fresh product: use safety gloves, safety glasses and protective clothing.
