Foundry mold and core making performance is being raised to a new level with the newly introduced PEP SET QUANTUM resin binder technology from Ashland Casting Solutions, a business group of Ashland Specialty Chemical, a division of Ashland Inc.

Designed to provide superior performance in a variety of ambient weather conditions, PEP SET QUANTUM binder provides more operational consistency in mold and core making. The resin also is lower in viscosity, thus increasing sand flowability and improving casting surface finish. Other benefits include an increase in strength and odor reduction.

PEP SET® resin binders were introduced in 1970 and are considered by many as the industry standard for no-bake technology. With the PEP SET QUANTUM technology innovation, Ashland Casting Solutions continues to drive performance gains for the metal casting industry.
