Craftanol- 256 IP is recommended for high temperature metals like Steels, Alloy Steels, heavy section cast irons and for copper base alloys. High temperature metals / heavy section cast iron / precision cast iron casting requires high temperature coating barriers which can withstand high metallostatic pressure of liquid metal to prevent Sand fusion / other problems related to Sand and to improve the surface finish of Casting.
