In sand casting, re-usable,
permanent patterns are used to make the sand moulds. The preparation and
the bonding of this sand mould are the critical step and very often are
the rate-controlling step of this process. Two main routes are used for
bonding the sand moulds:
The "green sand" consists of mixtures of sand, clay and moisture.
The "dry sand" consists of sand and synthetic binders cured
thermally or chemically.The sand cores used for forming the inside shape
of hollow parts of the casting are made using dry sand components.
This versatile technique is generally used for high-volume production.
