Foundry Hot Toppings

Hot toppings can assure total feeding of a casting and reduce shrink defects by protecting your melt from chilling. Insulating and exothermic toppings are available providing consistency on each and every pour. We offer formulation ranging from mildly to highly exothermic. Freedom Foundry Products are premium products that are cost-effective and have been used by foundries all around the country to create value for a fraction of the price of competing products.

Exothermic Hot Topping

Freedom Foundry exothermic hot toppings prevent costly shrink defects, reduce smoke and offensive odor, and provide superior insulating and exothermic blanket covering that prevents heat loss.

Insulating Compounds

Insulating compounds aid in riser efficiency and maximization and are engineered to be highly insulating.

Improve Alloy Recovery

Improve the alloy recovery in your metalcasting applications with the use of Mag Guard. Mag Guard is a steel alloy cover designed for high density and low permeability to delay reaction of the alloy, improving manganese recovery. The unique shape and composition of Mag Guard allows for full and superior coverage of your alloys, providing quality protection. Improved recovery and protection reduces cost and time spent in your melt department.

Key Highlights:

  • Clean
  • Oil Free
  • Rust Free
  • Reduce Temperature Loss
  • Easy Handling

Size Specifications:

  • 4 mesh x 14 mesh

Metal Flux

There are many metal flux formulations available on the market today that provide a multitude of functions. The two main factors to consider when buying a flux are; what type of metal are you pouring and what are you trying to achieve by fluxing. We offer several fluxes for pouring aluminum, bronze, zinc, brass, iron, and more. We also offer fluxes for furnace wall cleaning, sludge removal, modifying the characteristics of metal, improving the efficiency of the melt operation, drossing, and more.

Special formulations are available. They include low smoke formulations, fluoride and sodium-free formulations, and injection process fluxes for covering, drossing, cleaning, degassing, wall cleaning, alloying and refining.

Aluminum Flux

Aluminum flux formulations designed for cleaning molten aluminum. Ensure your die casting melt is clear of impurities with quality aluminum flux.

Brass Flux

Brass flux formulations designed for cleaning molten brass. Ensure your brass casting melt is clear of impurities with quality brass flux.

Bronze Flux

Bronze flux formulations designed for cleaning molten bronze. Ensure your bronze casting melt is clear of impurities with quality bronze flux.

Carbon Graphite

It is important to know what you’re receiving from your supplier when ordering carbon to make gray or ductile iron castings. Sometimes inferior carbon graphite will have a higher sulfur content that includes petroleum coke. This is to keep the price of the material low. The effect is creating an increase in the use of costly magnesium based alloys that could cause casting issues while making ductile iron.

Midvale Industries offers high quality natural and synthetic carbon graphite with lower levels of sulfur that is produced in the U.S.A. Conversely when making gray iron, some sulfur in your carbon can actually aid in reducing inoculant usage. Therefore making petroleum coke a good option.
