Dramatic color change featured in Ashland's VELVAPLAST

Ashland Inc : 15 April, 2005  (Company News)
Foundries wishing to maximize productivity by reducing oven drying time for molds and cores need only apply VELVAPLAST ZW FDI refractory coating and watch the color change. This new technology, introduced by Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland, Inc., provides the most dramatic color change of any refractory coating currently used.
'Our new VELVAPLAST ZW FDI refractory coating helps foundries not only reduce costs by optimizing oven drying times, but also by allowing core or mold density problems to be more readily seen,' said Joe Muniza, global marketing manager - metal casting specialties, Ashland Casting Solutions.

VELVAPLAST ZW FDI refractory coating can be brush, spray, dip or flowcoat applied and changes from a bright purple color to yellow when dry. The dramatic color change is very easy to observe and assists foundry personnel in determining when cores and molds are dry so that multiple layers can be applied, or pouring can begin.
