Casting Tools Using Special Coating Pyronol 400
Pyronol 400 is a kind of special coating for casting tools, with good mechanical properties, i. e. it protects the casting tool for a long time, no adhering of oxide films, suitable for all kinds of material.
PYRONOL 400 is suitable for ladles and other casting tools of all kinds of casting materials.
It adheres well on steel, gray cast iron and crucible materials.
• separates the metal from the casting tool safely
• got the liquid metal rolled off the casting tool and does not lead to any metal particles or oxidic built-ups
• can be easily washed off with a wire brush and water after the usage
• is on an aqueous basis and free of additives as water-glass or alcohol
PYRONOL 400 can be applied undiluted. For an easier application by dipping it can be diluted with water. For spraying a larger quantity of water is necessary.
After the application of PYRONOL 400 onto the tool a thorough drying is mandatory. This can happen by the air or
over the hot atmosphere of the furnace.
It is of the utmost importance to take care that the drying and heating does not occur abruptly and the temperature
should be approximately 300°C. After an air-drying a careful heating is also necessary. After that the tool is ready to
use and resistant to pushes which would had lead to spallings before the treatment. During the heating of the tool the
coating changes its colour. After the cooling down it has its original colour again.
