AGC Ceramics has succeeded in developed BRIGHTORB, a Ceramics Molding Agent composed of the company's proprietary
synthetic sand, drawing on its ceramics expertise and ceramics melting
technologies built up experience.
BRIGHTORB has exceptionally high
dimensional accuracy and molding strength even in casting molten metal at
over 1600 °C. This facilitates precise casting with
high-temperature molten metals such as stainless and cast steels, making
Brightorb™ ideal for a wide range of industrial applications.
BRIGHTORB also contributes to reducing waste
since it uses recyclable synthetics and as its basic ingredient.
In addition, Brightorb™ makes it
possible to achieve substantial reductions in completion time and manufacturing
cost by taking advantage of 3-D printing, whose use has been rapidly spreading
in the mold manufacturing industry in recent years.
