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.

DEGACRYL® RU - POROUS MOLD READY-TO-USE SYSTEM​

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.
