Products List

Tundish boards are the disposable boards used to form an inner lining for continuous casting. FRM manufacturs variety of high quality tundish boards with the brand name of Farnex®.

 

Farnex® boards are available in acidic, basic or duplex variety depending on required needs.

 

Good insulating properties of the Farnex results in consistent temperature of the liquid steel. Farnex improves the quality of steel by providing fresh board lining. It also improves turnaround time significantly by removing the long preheating process thus, enhances productivity.

 

 

 

 

Farsil® and Farpack® are supplementary products for Farnex.

Farsil for sealing the joints between Farnex side boards and eliminating the liquid metal leakage behind the Farnex boards.

Farpack is a packing mass used to seal around the nozzles.

FRM provides a wide range of coatings for both ferrous and non ferrous foundries.

It is essential to coat the sand or permanent moulds surfaces which is in contact with molten metal. The molten metal, which flows into theses moulds, is highly aggressive, and casting integrity can be adversely affected by undesired interactions with the substrate.

FRM`s coating products are designed to provide a perfect surface finish for both ferrous and non ferrous foundries. These refractory coatings provide a protective barrier between the molten metal and the mould or core substrate. This barrier ensures the integrity of the as-cast surface of the finished component

to prevent casting defects such as:

 

  • Metal Penetration
  • Sand burn-on
  • Sand wash
  • Poor Casting Strip
  • Mould Erosion
  • Gas Defects
  • Metal / Mould Reactions
  • Sand Expansion Defects
  • Metallurgical Defects

 

Coatings for steel foundry

For moulds and cores of different sections and weights in steel castings. FRM provides a wide range of coatings for any type of steel such as manganese and heat resistant steels.

 

Coatings for iron foundry

For moulds and cores of different sections and weights in cast iron and grey iron castings.

Conventional sand feeders give poor casting yield, and have large casting contact area  which lead to high fettling cost. The principles of using exothermic and insulating  sleeve as a method of increasing feeding efficiency of a feeder have been well established for a number of years.

 

FRM provides range of exothermic/insulating sleevess. With their exothermic/insulating nature, the feeding efficiency of  feeder sleeve is high and so a conventional sand feeder  can be replaced by much smaller  sleeve, whilst maintaining feed performance. Hence, casting yield is significantly increased and due to smaller contact area of the  feeders, fettling cost is reduced

 

Sleeve minimises initial chill as the feeder gets filled.  Gradually,as the head settles, a vigorous exothermic reaction is initiated and a large amount of heat is made available to the riser metal.

On the completion of the exothermic phase, the insulating properties of the sleeve matrix take over again ensuring the total solidification time of the riser metal is substantially extended.

Sleeve therefore has a triple action - initial insulation an exothermic second phase and final long term insulation - thus offering optimum feed characteristics.

Moulds and cores used in foundry must be hard enough to withstand the casting process, but must breakdown after solidification so that the casting can be easily removed from the mould.

FRM has produced specific additives of cores and moulds for different foundries for many years.

FRM core and mould additives are divided into four main types:

  • Silicate binders

binders are based on sodium silicates that have been optimised to accommodate the varying casting processes, thus guaranteeing best decomposition.

 

  • Mould and core adhesive

glues and sealants and self-setting or air drying adhesives.

 

  • Liquid breakdown agent for CO2 process

Additives for Sodium Silicate/sand mixture to improve breakdown of the sand compact after casting

 

  • Liquid and powder parting agent for shell sand systems

Either liquid or powder form have their own advantages.  They cause Mould and core materials part easily and cleanly from the pattern or box and also from each other.
