Self Setting Resin Systems

Self Setting Resin Systems

Suitable for the production of both molds and cores, FENOTEC can be used on a wide range of castings in a wide range of alloys. FENOTEC is compatible with clean dry silica sand (AFS 30 – 100) as well as chromite, olivine and zircon sands. The system also allows for the reclamation of the molding sand after casting.


FENOTEC is adaptable to all mixing methods but is ideally suited to high speed continuous mixers. Batch mixers can be used but allowances should be made for extended mixing time when selecting the required ester hardener. The high strength of FENOTEC binders means good mold strengths can be achieved at low addition rates. The products have negligible mixing fumes and low odor on casting and knock-out.


Casting surface finish is excellent without the nitrogen, sulfur or phosphorous related defects associated with the use of other binder systems.

"Prior to our relationship with Weaver Materiel, we were purchasing riser sleeves direct from the OEM. As a stocking distributor, Weaver typically is able to deliver same or next day. OEM lead times averaged three to four weeks. With Weaver, I've been able to reduce my working inventory by about 40%."

“Ashland Foundry & Machine Works and Weatherly Casting are grateful for the partnership in our working relationship with Weaver Materials.  Weaver has helped us maintain pricing and avoid increases in a volatile market.  Weaver has always kept us in supply of material when markets dictated shortages/allocation status.  If Weaver was not in our vendor pool daily production ability would have been negatively impacted.  Weaver is also technically able to review our foundry processes and make suggestions to either achieve a cost savings or process improvement.  I am looking forward to a continued collaboration between the Weaver team and my locations.”
