RESIN BASED BINDER - PERFECTLY TAILORED TO CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS

With a production capacity of 130,000 t, the SQ Group is the world's largest manufacturer of furan resins. Benefit from our more than 30 years of experience!
SQ moulding binders are particularly suitable for the production of moulds and cores for high-quality grey cast iron, nodular cast iron and cast steel. They can be used in the most modern and efficient manufacturing processes - e.g. for quick resin applications with a breaking-off time of a few minutes to the filling of large moulding boxes using a continuous mixer.
