In 1999, HA introduced Cold-Box systems with shares of silicate-containing solvents to the foundry industry. The Silcure systems are PUCB binders furnished with inorganic solvents. These solvents contain Si compounds in the molecule instead of hydrocarbons. A lower carbon content results in reduced BTX, BTEX, and CO2 emissions. This type of system delivers a low odor and smoke profile during the core-making and casting process. In North America, these systems could be considered the ideal bridge between PUCB binders and Inorganic high-productivity binder systems (IOB).


  • Significantly reduced emissions, fumes, and odour during pouring
  • High thermal stability
  • Very low condensate formation, thus less cleaning effort
  • Low gas formation, thus fewer casting defects (scabbing, gas defects, pinholes)
  • Very suitable for die casting
