Ask the Experts

Q Please explain the Free Radical Cure (FRC) process of core making?

A The FRC is a process that has some unique attributes. A significant one is that epoxy acrylic binders (at ASK Chemicals we call it “ISOSET”) achieve an unlimited life for the sand mixture. As with many other cold box processes, the reaction between the part A and part B binder begins when the two are mixed....Read Full Answer
