UG-Mat Foundry Sand Recycled Materials Resource

Spent foundry sand is composed primarily of silica sand, coated with a thin film of burnt carbon, residual binder (bentonite, sea coal, resins), and dust. The hydrophilic nature of the (primarily silica) foundry sand, however, can result in stripping of the asphalt cement coating surrounding the aggregate grains, with resulting loss of fine

EPA endorses reuse of spent foundry sand Castings SA

The spent foundry sand considered in the study is silica-based material that has become ineffective as core or molding sand due to excess heat and abrasion after several cycles of use by iron, steel, and aluminium foundries. Sands used by leaded and non-leaded brass and bronze foundries, and spent olivine sands were not assessed.

What Is Silica Sand & How Is It Different From Regular

Silica sand, also known as quartz sand, white sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (SiO2). The most common form of SiO2 is quartz a chemically inert and relatively hard mineral.
