Foundry Industry

Sodium Bentonite has been widely used as a foundry-sand binder in iron and steel foundries. It has high montmorillonite content and is a wet activated Bentonite suitable for greensand applications including fully automated and high-pressure systems.

Elements Zero Defect Binder

  • High Swelling and Wet Tensile strength helps for exceptional resistance to expansion and hot sand defects.
  • High Monmorillonite content and high Thermal stability would help to overcome Explosive Penetration flaw and reduces risk of Erosion.
  • Minimal Gelling time enhances the capacity of Sand plant.
  • Excellent mould integrity and high casting definition.

Elements–Binder

  • High Swelling and Wet Tensile strength helps for exceptional resistance to expansion and hot sand defects.
  • HIGHER DURABILITY of Sodium Bentonite leads to reduced Dead Clay in Sand System. This in turn reduces occurrence of several defects like Blow-Holes, Pin Holes, Sand Fusion and others on castings.
  • Excellent Green Compression Strength and WTS ensure almost zero scab defects.
  • Our Bentonite has characteristics of smooth, quick & uniform dispersal during DRY mixing of sand mix which reduces Binder addition & Sand Mixing/ Mulling Time.
