Foundry launch FEEDEX* FEF Feeder Sleeves


Our Foundry Technologies team in Borken Germany have developed a new feeder sleeve solution to support greensand foundries to redice environmental impact and costs as their need for high performance spot feeders increases.

FEEDEX* FEF is a fluoride emission free, highly exothermic and high pressure-resistant feeder sleeve material for high pressure iron castings

Available for the complete range of ram-up feeder sleeves, the solution sets a new standard in sustainability and best-in-class feed performance for high-pressure automatic moulding lines to deliver on the increasing demands of casting today’s iron applications. Ongoing weight reduction, alloy developments and the demand for improved mechanical applications are driving constant change.

FEEDEX* FEF supports the industry’s strong focus on reducing and eliminating harmful emissions and hazardous waste, being both fluoride emission free and lower in VOC than market alternatives. 

At the same time, it is proven to deliver the highest thermal and feed performance. It offers the identical industry-valued easy application, consistency and high strength of conventional low fluoride FEEDEX* HD products, which makes the new feeder sleeves particularly suitable for the challenges of high-pressure automatic moulding lines.
