Calsitherm GMBH manufactures calcium silicate boards in their plant in Paderborn, Germany. Their line of metal contact boards are sold under the trade name of Calcast. These products are world class and produced to high German standards. Calcast boards are produced in several variations. These are pure calcium silicate, graphite fiber reinforced, and graphite containing.board. Each material has its own unique property.. The graphite fiber reinforced board (CC60) has a high fracture toughness. The graphite containing boards (G4,G8,G16) have a very low surface tension, very low oil absorption and unique thermal properties making them useful in reducing cycle time in permanent mold applications.
Applications for Calcast include:
1. Sprues and bushings for wheel casters
2. Risers for low pressure multi cavity molds
3. Transition plates
4. Casting tips
5. Floats and spouts
7. Multi sprue low pressure casting boxes.
