Building a mold with sodium silicate

Building a mold with sodium silicate. 47. This is the way I use sodium silicate to build my molds for casting aluminum. Although I'm relatively new to casting I have had more success with this method than green sand and lost foam. Advice is always welcome, trolls are not, and if you think I need better PPE, you're welcome to send it to me.

Hot Compressive Strength and Deformation of Sand Mold

Sodium silicate bonded sand mold have the maximum hot strength at 200°C and 500°C, and bentonite bonded sand molds have it at 900°C. As sodium silicate and bentonite become soft above 500°C and 900°C, respectively, the sand molds deform largely. The molds made of zircon and chromite sands with low thermal expansion have high hot strength.
