Coatings for the gravity die-casting process

To obtain a perfect mould protection, FONDERMAT INDUSTRY offers the VERNIFOND (download the VERNIFOND line PDF), a line of conductive, semi-conductive and insulating coatings.

These are innovative coatings, specially studied to guarantee the best protection of the mould surfaces. Use of VERNIFOND provides control of the heat transfer, the metal flow, facilitates piece release, and extends the die life, while providing the cast piece with an excellent surface finish. If applied properly, they are not hygroscopic and have an optimum particle size. The porosity created during firing, and a good roughness of the coating, facilitate the flow of the metal, minimising rework performed during production.

All VERNIFOND coatings are easy to clean using only dry ice.
