Gilsonite foundry grade


Physical Sand properties with Gilsonite resin are equal or superior to seacoal at significantly lower additive levels. Gilsonite improves sand density, water requirements and strength (green, dry, baked, and hot). Gas evolution curves show that Gilsonite volatilizes more rapidly than seacoal. Gilsonite has the same total volatiles as seacoal at one-third the additive level.

PACKAGING

Gilsonite Foundry Grade is available in 50 lb. and 25 kilo net multi-ply paper bags which may be palletized and stretch wrapped. It is also available in bulk loaded trucks, containers, and a variety of bulk bag sizes.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Gilsonite is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon. There is no known history of dermatitis, lung disease or other health problems associated with handling of Gilsonite as supplied. Dusts are subject to combustion. Normal precautions used with flammable materials apply.
