SUGGESTED BAKING TEMPERATURES:
Core Oils 400 °F - 500 ° F
CR-16 300 °F - 400 °F
Note 1: While higher temperatures will cause the binders to bake faster, the opportunity for overbaking is greater, which will reduce the quality of cores.
Recommended storage temperature for the core oils is between 60 - 90 ° F. At lower temperatures, viscosity will increase, making pumping and mixing more difficult. At higher temperatures, solvent loss could occur. For the baking resins, the recommended storage temperature is between 60 - 75 ° F. These materials have a definite storage life, as discussed earlier, and colder storage temperatures will increase shelf life. Drum storage should be in a dry area, out of direct sunlight. Partially used drums should be tightly closed, to prevent contamination.
Health & Safety Information:
Carefully review the MSDS for safety information that may be relevant to your operations. Develop the means to manage product hazards before ordering. Contact our product safety group if you require assistance in understanding or managing these issues.
