The Benefits of Heat Treatment

Heat tretament means that materials are heated, insulated and cooled in solid state to obtain the expeceted structure and mechanical properties.Heat treating can soften metal, to improve formability. It can make parts harder, to improve strength. Heat treating can improve wear resistance by hardening the material. Metals (including steel, titanium, inconel, and some copper alloys) can be hardened either on the surface (case hardening) or all the way through (through hardening), to make the material stronger, tougher, more durable and more resistant to wear. If any comments, please contact gina@guokuncasting.com to talk about the heat treatment process.

Furan resin sand casting process

Why is the hard permeability of phenolurea resin self-hardening resin better than furan self-hardening resin sand? Because the curing process of phenol urea resin is a polymerization reaction, no small molecule water is produced during the curing process, and there is no problem of inconsistent curing speed inside and outside due to different volatilization speeds of moisture inside and outside the type.The curing process of furan self-hardening resin is In the polycondensation reaction, water is generated during the reaction.Because the evaporation rate of the water inside and outside the core is different, the curing speed of the inside and outside of the core is different, so its hardness and permeability are poor.This is also the reason why the curing speed of furan self-hardening resin sand is greatly affected by the relative humidity of the air. Precoated sand casting process is close to investment casting, suitable for small and medium metal casting parts, iron casting, steel casting, aluminum casting. Compared with other two sand casting methods, green sand molding process and resin sand molding process, the precoated sand castng is the most precision casting process with more casting accuracy and better surface finish.

Gray iron castings in ASTM A48 Class 20

Gray iron castings in ASTM A48 Class 20 are intended for general engineering use where tensile strength is a major consideration.The grade is equivalent with grey irn GB/T 9439-1988 HT150, DIN 1691 GG15, JIS G5501 FC15, NFA32-101 Ft.15D, BS1452 Gr.150, ISO/R185 Gr.15 in China and other countries. Chemical Composition:C:3.0~3.6 S:≤0.12 P:<0.15 Mn:0.6~1.0 Si:1.4~2.0Please note that this chemical composition is not standard, just from working experience of our iron casting foundry. Mechanical propertiesASTM A48 Class 20 gray iron has a minimum tensile strength of 20,000 psi (140 MPa). Class 20 has a high carbon equivalent and a ferrite matrix. Grey cast iron ASTM 148 Class 20 can be produced by using the following casting process:Sand castingShell mold castingLost foam casting The custom casting components in ASTM A48 Class 20 are these unimportant casting parts with low duty or load, such as boiler parts, covers, wheel, base plate, weight plate, pump body, valve body, pipe fittings, etc
