Ashland and SinterCast announce global alliance

Ashland Inc : 15 March, 2005  (Company News)
Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group within Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc., and SinterCast AB (publ) have agreed to a global marketing and technical alliance.
Through their technical alliance, Ashland and SinterCast will collaborate to develop novel mold coatings, binders, resins and core materials to optimize the structure and properties of Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) at the immediate mold/metal interface. The combined efforts will also be designed to strategically alter the thermal balance within the mold to optimize castability. The collaboration is designed to further improve the thinwall design flexibility of CGI in complex lightweight castings and expand the overall market potential of CGI.

Under the global marketing alliance, the parties will combine their products, services, engineering know-how and contact lists to introduce reliable CGI production technology to new markets and to deliver complete CGI production solutions to the world foundry industry.

Ashland’s technology strengths in mold/metal interactions, and SinterCast’s knowledge of CGI, will be brought together at Ashland’s advanced facilities for research and development studies in Dublin.

“This alliance creates an industry leading initiative to expand CGI into other casting markets,” said Mike Swartzlander, vice president, Ashland Specialty Chemical, and general manager, Ashland Casting Solutions. “With the unified expertise and innovation power of Ashland and SinterCast, we are confident that we can further improve our industry’s capabilities to make the most of CGI’s outstanding mechanical properties and true potential.”

“SinterCast is enthusiastic about the technical and commercial possibilities presented by this alliance,” said Steve Dawson, president and chief executive officer, SinterCast. “Working together with Ashland will help us grow the overall CGI market potential and also provides us with an established and respected partner as we bring the SinterCast process control technology to new products and new geographical markets.”
