Contains no nitrogen
Low water
Non-reportable formaldehyde and phenol
Low viscosity
High tensile strength
Increased productivity – resin helps print heads to last longer
Reduced labor – cores are cleaned faster
Reduced costs – resin is less expensive

Our wide product selection allows you to select the right product to meet your specific application. No matter what your particular goal is, we are certain that one of our acid cure No-Bake resin systems will get the job done.
HAI's acid cure resins range from high FA content, low water, zero nitrogen to Furan modified resins that offer the lowest cost, while maintining the expected performace in the mold making process without compromising casting quality.
