Transformation of bentonite used in green sand molds

Jun 01, 2021 Green sand molds in foundry use bentonite as a binder. During the casting process, the heat transferred to the surrounding sand in the mold leads to the degradation of bentonite structure, thereby forming new types of deposits on the surface of sand grain. This results in deactivation of binder and unsuitability of sand for its reuse.
