Properties Optimization and Strengthening Mechanism of KNO3–KCl Water-Soluble Composite Salt Core for Hollow Zinc Alloy Die Castings

Xiaolong Gong,  Fuchu Liu,  Xinwang Liu,  Wenming Jiang &  Zitian Fan  International Journal of Metalcasting (2022)Cite this article Abstract A composite inorganic salt core with good water solubility and formability was proposed using potassium nitrate (KNO3) and potassium chloride (KCl) as base materials. The KNO3–KCl molar ratio has been optimized for the KNO3–KCl composite salt core, and

Advances in Technology of Soluble Cores for Die Castings

AUTHORS P. Jelínek1, E. Adámková1, F. Mikšovský1, J. Beňo1 ABSTRACT A number of technologies is developed that substitute simple metal cores in the high-pressure casting technology. Soluble cores, namely on the salt basis, represent the highest prospect. The contribution gives the results of the production of salt cores by high-pressure squeezing and shooting with using a binder. Special attention
