Mold and Core Coatings

Kore Mart manufactures over twenty different Ceramic, Zircon, Olivine, Chromite, and Graphitic mold and core wash coatings. Sandcote is a ceramic engineered suspension system with between 7-10 additives to assist with rheology, settling, mixing, and coating. Kore Mart’s Sandcote protects cores and molds from metal penetration and sand burn in at high temperatures thereby lowering production costs and reducing casting cleaning time. We have the ability to provide both alcohol and water based coatings using any combination of the aforementioned refractory media.

Kore Mart’s mold and core coatings have been developed for all metals, molding, and core applications. Sandcote refractory coatings and washes are inspected to Kore Mart’s quality specifications before they enter the field. Sandcote is tested for specific gravity, Baume, and tear dropping. Sandcote is packaged in 5 gallon pails, 55 gallon drums, and 275 gallon tote tanks.
