TEMPGARD Insulating Sleeves for Non-Ferrous Foundries

TEMPGARD riser sleeves are strong, low-density, tube sleeves of insulating refractory material. They are specifically designed to promote efficient feeding of sandcast aluminum and copper castings. The excellent insulation value of TEMPGARD delays solidification, keeping metal in the riser liquid longer. This allows smaller insulated risers to replace larger conventional sand-lined risers.     

• Sleeve withstands rough handling and molding
• Increased casting yield
• Reduced metal treatment costs
• Reduced riser contact area
• Reduced casting cleaning costs
• Low smoke and fume
• Sleeves are easily cut to special heights
