The Company is proud to use the most environmental-friendly binder system. The feedstock is made of metal powders and of two types of binder: the primary binder, which is water soluble and the secondary binder, which is removable through a thermal treatment.
In order to remove the primary binder, components are immersed in a hot water tank and dried in an air oven afterwards. At this stage, in the component’s structure an open porosity is formed.
The open structure helps remove the secondary binder in the next phase, when components are laid into the debinding furnace. Then they are heated until they reach the secondary binder’s evaporation temperature and held at this temperature until removal is completed.
