A question that is often asked is "Will the sealant used in vacuum impregnation melt?" This is asked by those who's castings need to withstand heat. In this blog, we will answer this question.
There are a variety of factors that can help you determine which type of vacuum impregnation will best meet your needs, including processes, systems and sealants.
Godfrey & Wing has published an article in Foundry Management & Technology titled "Continuing Advances in Vacuum Impregnation Systems". This article discusses the manufacturing safety and manufacturing production advancements in vacuum impregnation equipment. You can read the entire article below.
Godfrey & Wing's vacuum impregnation equipment is the best in the world. The equipment re-imagined vacuum impregnation by making it safer, increasing production and eliminating casting defects. But how exactly does it work? Watch this animation video.
In order to properly seal porosity, parts must be clean and dry. If any residual fluids or debris are on the part, then the following problems may occur.
You may understand that vacuum impregnation is a process by which sealant is used to seal porosity found in a casting. But how exactly does it work?
A common question asked is if vacuum impregnation can seal cracks in addition to casting porosity. In this blog, we will answer this question and address the difference between a crack and porosity.
Customers often ask us how sealant is removed from machined features, like tapped holes. Customers assume that the holes are masked, but that is far from the truth. In this blog, we will discuss what in the vacuum impregnation process enables a casting to be properly sealed without excess cured sealant in unwanted areas (sealant contamination).
