Sanitary Casting

在实心铸模中,陶瓷物体的四面都被石膏所包围,并有一个储存空间来储存滑液。对于空心铸模来说,一旦石膏吸收了外面那层粘土的大部分液体,剩下的滑液就会被倒掉,以便以后使用。铸件从模具中取出,进行修剪,然后让其干燥。这就产生了一个陶坯作品,然后在烧制前进行干燥。这种技术适用于生产复杂的形状,通常用于卫生洁具,如马桶和脸盆。

Acti-Gel®208添加剂提高了成品釉的整体质量,改善了平滑度和光泽度,不会出现针孔和爆裂现象,同时增加了釉体的附着力。此外,Acti-Gel 208还显示出工艺上的优势,如减少干燥时间、过喷、沉降、釉面滴落和下垂。它消除了釉面径流和硬堆积现象。Acti-Gel 208提供了更大的配方空间,可以取代其他已知会产生某些质量问题(如针孔)的成分,并降低成本。例如,高岭土和CMC可减少多达50%,Bentone EW和六偏磷酸钠可完全去除。高岭土的减少可以直接减少研磨时间。

在许多不同类型的釉料中,Acti-Gel® 208已经证明了在加工过程中的改进,原材料的减少,以及最重要的,釉料的成品质量。Acti-Gel® 208提供了更大的配方自由度,以取代其他已知会产生某些质量问题的成分,如针孔。

一些例子是。
熔块瓷砖釉料-Acti-Gel® 208可以减少50%的高岭土,并完全去除Bentone EW和六偏磷酸钠。
旋转圆盘瓷砖釉料-Acti-Gel® 208可以不使用膨润土和STPP,并减少一半的高岭土和CMC。由于配方中的高岭土较少,研磨时间也较短。
让我们向您展示Acti-Gel® 208如何利用釉料中的这些优点提高您的生产。

  • 减少75%的干燥时间
  • 更光滑、更有光泽的表面处理。
  • 减少起泡或"弹出"和针孔。
  • 更高的釉体附着力
  • 更好的喷雾性能
  • 在达到相同密度和粘度的情况下,减少或消除CMC、HMS、膨润土和高岭土。
  • 优异的防沉降性能,减少了分层,及无硬结块。
  • 减少釉面滴落和下垂,杜绝釉面徑流。
  • 降低成本
