US5911269A Method of making silica sand molds and cores

Thermal expansion defects, i.e. veining, are reduced in iron, steel, and nonferrous castings by adding a lithia-containing material in a sufficient amount to the silica sand mold to provide about 0.001% to about 2.0% of lithia. The addition of lithia is accomplished by adding lithium bearing minerals such as α-spodumene, amblygonite, montebrasite, petalite, lepidolite, zinnwaldite, eucryptite

Core Making for Aluminum Casting Sand and Permanent Mold

We produce sand cores in-house using two core making processes: The Isocure™ Core Making Process. Isocure cores are produced using a "cold-box" core making process. That is, in the Isocure coring making process, no heat is applied to the core box. An Isocure Core is produced using silica sand mixed with a phenolic urethane resin used as a

Core (manufacturing) Wikipedia

A core is a device used in casting and moulding processes to produce internal cavities and reentrant angles (an interior angle that is greater than 180°). The core is normally a disposable item that is destroyed to get it out of the piece. They are most commonly used in sand casting, but are also used in die casting and injection moulding.. For example, cores define multiple passages inside
