EKamold® suspensions as release agents in light metal and non-ferrous casting & the aluminum industry

EKamold® SUSPENSIONS AS RELEASE AGENTS IN LIGHT METAL AND NON-FERROUS CASTING & THE ALUMINUM INDUSTRY

Separation of molten non-ferrous metals, such as magnesium, zinc and aluminum, from their substrate requires the use of a release coat. Boron nitride (BN) is an ideal release material because it is not wetted by a large number of molten light-metal and non-ferrous metals, or by molten aluminum. Ekamold® boron nitride suspensions from ESK not only offer the advantage of being outstanding release agents, but at the same time guarantee good adhesion to the substrate and so ensure a long service life.

ESK offers a range of boron nitride (BN) suspensions, with binders and solvents that have been optimized to various applications.

Typical Applications of EKamold® BN Suspensions as Release Agents are:

  • Metals:
    Ladles, samplers, casting molds
  • Ceramics:
    Launders, crucibles, nozzles, stoppers, risers, hot-top rings
  • Casting sand:
    Mold inserts

Advantages of ESK Ekamold® Suspensions Made from Boron Nitride (BN):

  • Excellent adhesion thanks to optimized binder systems
  • Outstanding release agent, especially in contact with molten light metals, non-ferrous metals and liquid aluminum
  • Reduced wear by the metal
  • Reduced transfer of ferrous contaminants into the melt
  • Improved surface of casting
  • Easy to apply
  • Self-curing

Advantages of ESK EKamold® Cast-M Suspension:

  • Water-based suspension for the coating of metals and metal substrates
  • Good thermal insulation
  • Outstanding release agent, especially in contact with molten light metals, non-ferrous metals and liquid aluminum
  • No sticking of cast skin
  • Reduced wear by pitting
  • Reduced transfer of ferrous contaminants into the melt
  • Improved surface of casting
  • Free choice of application technology (e.g. brushing, spraying, dipping)
  • Self-hardening

ESK Offers the Following Water-Based Boron Nitride Suspensions:

  • EKamold® Cast-C for all types of refractory ceramics and cements
  • EKamold® Cast-M for metal substrates (e.g. casting ladles)
  • EKamold® WP for metal and ceramics (exception: fused silica)
