INTRODUCTION:
Although various aspects of the permanent mould casting process have been studied and developed, such as alloy selection, machine automation, etc., little attention has been given to the products and methods for preparing the surfaces of the die. It is often the operator that selects and prepares the coating material, and the final choice is based almost exclusively on practical experience rather than technical and theoretical considerations. This manual aims to provide foundry engineers and operators involved in die preparation with the information required for the correct use of coating materials, in order to optimise efficiency and so improve foundry production. This latest revised and illustrated edition of the Foseco DYCOTE Manual comprises: An analysis of the functions of coating materials, preparation and application methods, and examples of die preparation for the most common castings. The tables with the characteristics of DYCOTE products have been extended, rationalised and now include a new family of DYCOTE’s, the DURA group. This offers extended coating life, to improve productivity. Where a special coating is only available in some countries it has not been included in the table. Also not every mentioned coating is available in every country. For more details, please contact your local Foseco company. The manual is completed with appendices on cryogenic sandblasting, coating application defects and defects in die-cast parts.

FUNCTIONS OF DYCOTE:
1 Control of the metal flow to ensure that it reaches all parts of the die at a sufficient temperature to prevent the formation of seams, cold laps, etc.
2 Control of heat transfer to obtain better solidification and ensure that the castings are properly fed.
3 Easy release: since castings are extracted at just below the solidification temperature, easy release ensures that castings do not come out deformed.
4 Good surfaces, and therefore a reduction in finishing costs.
5 Longer die life, therefore increased productivity and reduced maintenance. These results are directly in line with the characteristics of DYCOTE.
