Silica Sol Casting

Jul 26, 2017Both silica sol casting and water glass casting belong to investment casting or lost wax casting. So process of silica sol casting is almost the same as water glass casting. But silica sol investment casting process uses silica sol zircon sand as the molding material, which can stand temperature up to 2000 degree.

What is Precision Casting|Process|JC Casting

Zircon sand and zircon powder are used because of their small expansion coefficient, which is only 4.610-6/C, so they can be ignored. (5) Effect of shell baking. Since the expansion coefficient of the shell is small, when the shell temperature is 1150 C, it is only 0.053%, so it can be neglected. (6) The influence of casting temperature.

MOLDING MATERIAL

Green sand that has been dried or baked in suitable oven after the making mold and cores, is called dry sand. It possesses more strength, rigidity and thermal stability. It is mainly suitable for larger castings. Mold prepared in this sand are known as dry sand molds. 3) Loam sand Loam is mixture of sand and clay with water to a thin plastic paste.
