Clariant, a globally-leading specialty chemical company, will highlight the company’s latest innovations dedicated to various foundry processes at the Metal China 2024 exhibition to be staged on 4-7 July 2024 at the National Exhibition and Conventional Center in Shanghai, China.

With customer focus and sustainability-driven innovation at its core, Clariant has been offering industry-leading products and solutions for various foundry manufacturers where consistent quality, as well as an increasingly strong emphasis on green production are closely pursued.

Through its well-established production and lab facilities, in addition to quality management systems and excellence in customer service, the company has become the partner of choice in the automotive, engineering machinery, refrigeration, construction, and machinery industries, where metal castings play an important role in contributing to business success.

One of the products Clariant will feature at the Metal China exhibition is the innovative Geko casting bentonite, which is an important special clay used as a binding agent in molding greensand. It is used to enhance properties such as green strength and versatility to molding mixes such that specifics on dimension stability, surface properties and tensile strength in the final molded part can be fully met.

Another product to be highlighted by Clariant at Metal China is the Ecosil casting clay blend of bentonite, coal powder and additive that readily enhances the safety and sustainability aspects in the manufacturing process.

"Clariant is fully committed to the foundry market in China and we will continue to invest in various areas in order to meet the specific needs of our customers who are constantly exploring new breakthroughs in their casting and metal-working processes. I believe only by joining hands along the value chain can we foster innovation and implement sustainable solutions that propel growth for one another,” said Avi Fan, Clariant’s Head of Adsorbents APAC, BU Adsorbents & Additives.
