Spincast offers several categories of mold coatings- Graphite, Zircon, and Alumina Based. Graphite and Alumina based mold coatings are available to our customers in wet form in 55 gallon drums. All of our mold coatings are available in 5 gallon pails, as well.
Mold coating is applied before metal is poured into a spinning mold. It is used to protect the metal mold, control the cooling rate, obtain the right microstructure, aid in extraction of castings, and help customers achieve their desired casting surface finishes.
Inappropriate mixing and application of mold coating is a cause of defective castings. Customers using Spincast mold coatings can depend on our experts to help alleviate defects based on wash application.
