HA-International’s newest resin, Enviroset 3D Jet Resin, is a low-viscosity thermosetting furan resin that has been specially manufactured for use in all 3D Printers for sand cores and molds and is suitable for use with all types of metal.
This furan resin offers a number of features and benefits that set it apart from conventional furan resins on the market:
- Contains no nitrogen
- Low water
- Non-reportable formaldehyde and phenol
- Low viscosity
- High tensile strength
- Increased productivity – resin helps print heads last longer
- Reduced labor – cores are cleaned faster
- Reduced costs – resin is less expensive
Our wide product selection allows you to select the right product to meet your specific application. No matter your particular goal, we are certain that one of our acid-cure No-Bake resin systems will get the job done.
HAI's acid cure resins range from high FA content, low water, and zero nitrogen to Furan-modified resins that offer the lowest cost while maintaining the expected performance in the mold-making process without compromising casting quality.
Aikure, along with Enviroset and Super Set resins, provides a diverse selection of products for various casting types. With nearly every combination of furfuryl alcohol, water, urea, and plasticizer chemistry, HAI can accommodate any casting application.
Enviroset 138 is an alternative to Furan-based resins that has sufficient hot strengths and tensiles but at a lower cost compared to Furan resins.
HAI's Enviroset 138 is used in conjunction with the same catalysts used with our Furan line of products.
This resin also exemplifies some of the fastest curing speeds for a Furan-free, resole-based resin, allowing for a great alternative for current Furan foundries.Learn More
HA-International encourages our customers to recycle their used totes through the reconditioning program of their choosing. Reconditioning reduces environmental impacts and costs associated with use of resin packaging. And it’s free in most areas, provided you meet reclamation company acceptance criteria.
Reconditioning vendors active in North America include:
Resin Tote Fittings
All Foundry Resin totes utilize a Cam-Lock fitting system for Part 1 and Part 2 totes.
- All Part 1 resins are 2” fittings, totes have white corners.
- All Part 2 resins are 1.5” fittings, totes have red corners.
- All Techniset Activators and ALpHACURE hardeners are 1.5” fittings.
Please view our Resin Tote Fittings Overview on how to properly connect these fittings.
