Sprit Base Zircon Coating



Craftanol-256 is a ready for use green coloured spirit based zircon coating. The blend of suspending agents & Zircon in the product enhances good covering properties with increased refractoriness of coating.

Product Function

Craftanol – 256 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.

Instructions To Use

  • Stir the coating thoroughly before application
  • Take out requisite quantity of Craftanol-256 ; if required dilute the coating by CRAFTANOL .I.P. THINNER to desired degree of consistency as per application practice.
