Enabling Advancement

Synthetic resin-bound molding materials have been transforming the foundry industry since they were introduced in the 1950s. And Momentive products have driven this development from the very beginning. Today, only thermoset resins and resin binders can meet the economical and quality demands on this industry.

Our products—and the innovative processes they allow for—deliver significant value to the foundry industry. Momentive provides an extensive range of products for all applications in cold, heat and gas curing processes, including refractory coatings, resin-coated sands and binders for sand cores and molds.

End-use operating environments drive our products to be designed for: 

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Tensile strength and durability
  • Metal fatigue prevention
  • Reduced energy demand
  • Emission reductions
