Learn about Refractory Coatings

A good refractory coating can bring significant value to your operation through improved surface finish or reduced cleaning costs. Refractory coatings are a complex mixture of ingredients in which each plays a part in the final product's application characteristics, stability, surface finish, resistance to cast defects, and cost. Be sure to contact your HAI sales representative to determine which coating best fits your foundry's needs.
