Eco board material made from recycled polyol for the foundry industry

With the new eco board material Raku-Tool WB-1450, the company is taking a further step towards more sustainability. "Customers are using a board material that protects precious resources and fully conforms to the high quality standard set by Rampf”, comments Heinz Horbanski.
The new board exhibits a very dense surface structure and is easy to machine. A good dimensional stability, high abrasion and chemical resistance as well as good impact strength complete the key properties for the new material. The main applications for WB-1450 are machined foundry patterns and core boxes. A further plus point is that the recycling polyol which is used to produce the eco board is supplied by the sister company Rampf Ecosystems. At Rampf Ecosystems all accumulated polyurethane waste from within the Rampf group is recycled and then flows back into the production cycle.
With the development of its Close Contour Casting systems Rampf Tooling has already taken a step towards sustainability in the modelling and tooling market. The Close Contour Casting material CC-6507 was especially developed for the productions of foundry patterns and core boxes and through the close contour shape less waste is generated.
For 30 years Rampf Tooling has been producing high quality tooling materials for the foundry industry. Its experience has led to a comprehensive product range from boards to liquid materials to which the new eco board is an ideal addition.
