No Bake

Flexible Cure Time – Sand Flowability – Reclaimable Sand

No Bake Process

The Phenolic Urethane No Bake (PUNB) process utilizes a catalyst reaction to produce a urethane bond that cures under ambient conditions without the addition of heat, gas, or vapor.

In addition to PUNB resin systems, HA International has the industry’s most comprehensive lineup of Furan No Bake (FNB) and Phenolic No Bake (PNB) Acid Cure No Bake resin systems.

With HA International, you can choose from a full line of refractory coatings, release agents, and metal cleaners to compliment your No Bake operation.
