MAGNASET 2.0 – New generation of environmentally-friendly furan
resins with improved classification
Next to high quality requirements, strict environmental
regulations, and high cost-pressures the importance of
sustainability aspects and health awareness is getting more
important in foundries. Therefore, ASK Chemicals has developed a
second generation of MAGNASET as environmentally friendly No-Bake
furan resins. MAGNASET resins have reduced free furfuryl alcohol
(FA) content and a performance comparable to standard furan resins.
The new technology offers important benefits: improved
classification, emission reduction potential at a performance equal
to the first MAGNASET generation and improved storage stability.
Despite having a free FA content below 40%, it is possible to
replace standard furan resins with a free FA content typically
between 50 and 95%.
In this webinar, Dr. Nicolas Riensch presents the advantages and
performance of furan No-Bake binder systems. Foundries looking to
promote sustainability and working conditions while maintaining a
high casting quality should consider MAGNASET 2.0 and this
