Inorganic Binder System: Cordis

Inorganic chemistry on a standard basis: Completely emission-free casting

On the road to sustainable, energy and resource efficient processes, strategic decisions increasingly focus on inorganic binder systems for the foundry industry, and economic aspects play a decisive role in this process.

Some years ago, Hüttenes-Albertus successfully introduced the inorganic Cordis binder, thereby establishing in the market both a high-volume coremaking line and a highly diversified production line.
Intensive research

Through intensive research and in close collaboration with our foundry partners, Hüttenes-Albertus has succeeded in developing a binder system that is comparable to the organic binders currently available on the market and, in addition, brings about significant advantages in terms of lower emission and increased productivity.
Economic advantages

Next to reducing emission, the benefits of inorganic binders for the foundries also include

  • short transit times
  • reduced manual labour
  • reduced energy costs
  • omission of costly plant technology for the prevention and/or reconditioning of air emissions

For GIFA 2011, a new milestone in the field of inorganic core binder systems was set. The current state of the sand regeneration possibilities and associated further conservation of the available resources was also presented there.

Special Sands

What are special sands?

HA Special Sands

The term “special sand” covers all industrial minerals (except quartz sand) commonly used in foundries as moulding material for the manufacture of cores and moulds/dies.

Special sands include natural mineral sands, sintering and melting products produced in granular form or turned into granular form by breaking, grinding and grading processes, or inorganic mineral sands produced by other physical-chemical methods.

Special sands are different from quartz sand, particularly as regards their significantly lower thermal expansion behaviour within the temperature range of 20 – 600°C, their heat conductivity, refractoriness, and other physical characteristics.
Reasons for using special sands

Special sands are used instead of quartz sand for coremaking and mouldmaking because they are characterized by better physical-chemical properties.

In consideration of the casting properties to be achieved, the individual advantages of a special sand can be used

  • to avoid sand expansion defects, especially finning/veining;
  • to avoid the addition of gas-forming ingredients;
  • to avoid a mould-metal interface reaction;
  • to avoid metal penetration;
  • to reduce the core weight;
  • to increase the flowability of the sand;
  • to control the formation of microstructure;
  • to produce thin-walled castings.

COLD-BOX: A TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE!

As an innovative foundry supplier, Hüttenes-Albertus soon started to develop cold box binder systems with improved properties. In 1999, the first generation of cold box systems with solvents containing silicate was used in foundries. Compared to the aliphatic and aromatic solvents used until then in the cold box process, the use of tetraethyl orthosilicate was the first step towards a cold box system of an inorganic nature.

The tried and tested systems based on REM or TES, or with reduced monomers, are still the productive standard today appreciated by many foundries.

Continuous improvement

Hüttenes-Albertus is not content with resting on the laurels of success, but understands research and development as a continuous process.

One of the most recent development goals was to gradually increase the proportion of inorganic constituents in the cold box system. To this end, a new generation of binders on the basis of tetraethyl silicate was developed. In the new generation (Si-modified system), the Si units are not only contained in the solvent but also integrated in the resin molecule.

HA’s new patented solution combines, for the first time, the advantages of both the cold box process and the inorganic method. It is now possible to use significantly less solvent than with the former cold box binders.

The results are promising:

  • Compared to the aromatic cold box systems, the carbon content was reduced by 23%. Through the consistent integration of silicate components, this new generation of binders has already reached the remarkable level of content of silicon dioxide of 12.4%.
  • The new generation of cold box binders contributes to further improvement in terms of environmental compatibility and minimization of pollution.
  • Significant progress has also been made as regards the reduction of condensate production and gas pressure.

This new generation of binders is already successfully being used for serial production by a number of aluminium and iron foundries.

About us

Company details

Hüttenes-Albertus is the leading international manufacturer of chemical products for the foundry industry. We provide our customers with state-of-the-art foundry chemical products for use in all established coremaking and mouldmaking processes.

We closely cooperate with the foundries and consistently adjust our products to ensure their technical and practical suitability. Not only does this process involve the further development of established products, but it also takes us in completely new directions.

Tradition creates future.

The history of Hüttenes-Albertus reaches back for more than 100 years. Since then, the group has grown worldwide and is currently represented in more than 30 countries on all continents.

1905 Foundation of Albertuswerke GmbH in Hanover/Germany

1909 Foundation of Gebr. Hüttenes in Düsseldorf/Germany

Albertuswerke GmbH and Gebr. Hüttenes KG always considered meeting the growing demands of the foundry market to be their primary task in business. The merger in 1970 was the logical consequence of this policy: Two specialists of foundry chemistry uniting their expertise and experience, „not with the aim of selling the products we currently have in our catalogue, but to develop and produce the products that help the foundries solve their problems."

1970 Formation of Hüttenes-Albertus Chemische Werke GmbH

Today: The global HA Group

Today Hüttenes-Albertus is represented in more than 30 countries on all continents, and nearly 2,000 dedicated employees are ready to offer our customers throughout the world advice and assistance.

Systematic expansion complements the existing business and strengthens the leading position of Hüttenes-Albertus in the global foundry markets.
