Fabrication and characterization of high-strength water-soluble composite salt core for zinc alloy die castings

Suo Tu,  Fuchu Liu,  Guanjin Li,  Wenming Jiang,  Xinwang Liu &  Zitian Fan  Abstract A water-soluble salt core (WSSC) strengthened by reinforcing particles, including bauxite powder, glass fiber powder, and sericite powder, was fabricated by gravity-casting process. The surface quality, bending strength, water solubility, humidity resistance, and shrinkage rate of WSSC were investigated, and the synergistic

DEVELOPMENT OF WATER-BASED CORE TECHNOLOGY FOR LIGHT ALLOYS

ABSTRACT This thesis describes, in a manufacturing context, the development of new waterbased core technology for light alloys. Cores used for steel casting are made from fused silica and are removed using hot sodium hydroxide under refluxing (pressurising hot acids). However, aluminium and other light alloys are attacked by sodium hydroxide. Currently there is no
