Durable Molds with DEGACRYL®

The use of durable porous molds in the ceramics industry as a substitute for plaster molds is one example of how DEGACRYL® products are making innovative solutions possible. They are well-established components in porous mold formulations for pressure-casting.

Key benefits of DEGACRYL® porous molds

DEGACRYL® for porous molds enables high pressure casting up to 50 bar which​ significantly reduces mold dwell time up to 80%. Compared to plaster molds, porous plastic materials made of DEGACRYL® have much less weight and can therefore easily be transported.​

Its outstanding inherent chemical composition ensures excellent mold surface properties, resulting in superior quality of the green bodies. In this context, we offer products with a very narrow bead size distribution. These properties also lead, among other advantages, to homogeneous dewatering of the green bodies.​

In addition, the product shows a higher productivity due to a faster dewatering process and improved life cycle of each mold. ​

​We also offer products for the variable adjustment of parameters like pore size and pore volume. If you are interested in more information, please contact our technical contact.


Beside single components of formulations, Evonik offers ready-to-use materials: DEGACRYL® RU.​​

With the introduction of our DEGACRYL® RU, we provide an easy three-component casting resin system (only water needed) for the manufacturing of porous molds. The big advantage is the simplified storage of only a few components.​ ​

The composition of our DEGACRYL® RU system was specially developed to compensate disturbance variables.
