Wexford Lake Sand

Wexford Lake Sand

The sub-rounded shape and natural oxides make our lake sands ideal for iron foundries. No other type of sand has the excellent anti-veining characteristics of lake sands, enabling foundries to eliminate expensive additives and instead rely on the consistency of the lake sands. These fine bank sands also perform well as additives to green sand systems.


Features & Benefits
• Excellent performance in green sand systems
• Superior anti-veining properties
• High quality with cpk’s that exceed 3
• Extremely consistent and low ADV (>5)
• Finer lake sands make an excellent molding addition
• Washed and dried for better coating of the binder to the grains
• PLC controlled blending ensures consistent particle size distribution

"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.”
