The “Core” News from Supreme Cores

Supreme Cores, Inc. has been working hard to continually improve its efforts as a supplier of cores and molds to the Foundry Industry. I have a couple of items that I want to bring to your attention.

1. We are currently testing alternative Shell sands that will help reduce the formaldehyde levels for the workers at Supreme. The new sands will also be beneficial for our customers who will experience less off gassing during shake out. We are working with our Shell sand suppliers to reduce formaldehyde yet retain many of the same characteristics of the original sands. Resin levels, hot and cold tensile are all very similar to the previous sands. If you are concerned about potential issues with your cores, please let us know and we will work with you to provide sample cores and more information about the new sands.

2. Recently our # 1 customer for the past 2 years dramatically reduced their orders to us. This work was in our Airset ( Pepset ) Department and required about 12 – 16 workers each day. We now have an excess of workers available. We have 3 different mixers available 2 shifts a day in Pepset. Let us know if we can help you with your air set molds or large cores.

3. We are nearly complete with the installation of a new CB-22 machine that will be able to blow Isocure cores. This will be our second machine that can make Isocure cores. The other machine is our Laempe L10. Isocure sand is cheaper per pound than Isoset . Let us know if you have a job you would like for us to blow on this machine.

We hope you have a wonderful Holiday season and a prosperous end to 2015.
