John Winter will exhibit GEOPOL® inorganic binder, at GIFA 2015, along with their working partners Sandteam and Technofond, following testing and improvements to the product.
GEOPOL® is now used in a number of foundries casting aluminium to steel, with reclamation levels up to 85% with specialist equipment.
Low odour and fume mean this product significantly reduces the environmental impact of casting production, while maintaining casting quality.
The process differs from traditional sodium silicates in the way that the bond is formed. It forms an amorphous inorganic polymer, which exhibits higher strengths at lower addition levels.
Adam Bennett, sales director at John Winter, said: “We’re constantly looking for new ways to reduce the environmental impact of casting production for our customers and GEOPOL® has transformed the working environment at several of our customers’ foundries in Europe, North America and the Middle East.
“GEOPOL® will help tackle the ever-growing environmental issues that we see every day during moulding and casting, and we’re expecting a lot of interest at the show.
“We will also be giving a technical paper during the event as part of the World Foundry Technical forum, to highlight our experiences with this technology”
