Advantages of Ceramic Sand

Reduced Health Hazard

Contains NO Crystalline Silicon (irrespirable hazard)

Low Thermal Expansion

Lower scrap costs. Can produce thin wall castings

High Reclamation Yield

Spherical grain shape improves mechanical reclamation

Single- Sand System

Reduces cost of Chromite and Zircon sand usage

Wide Variety of Particle Sizes

Custom blended sizes AFS 20 – Fine Powder coating material

Due to ceramic sand’s unique physical and chemical properties, it can be used in a wide variety of foundry processes. Ceramic sand can serve as a replacement for silica sand, and substitute for both chromite and zircon sands in many applications.
