SAND COATINGS - GRAPHLITE 344
Alcohol Based Graphite Refractory Coating

DESCRIPTION:  GRAPHLITE 344 is a graphite refractory coating designed for both ferrous and non-ferrous applications.  GRAPHLITE 344 can be applied by brushing, dipping, spraying or flow coating.  The rheological properties of GRAPHLITE 344 contribute to improved workability and consistency, thus providing improved surface finish and casting quality. Because of the excellent suspension of GRAPHLITE 344, minimal settling occurs which allows for easy re-dispersion.  The coating is designed to be reduced with Isopropyl alcohol at the customer’s facility.
