Raw materials for foundries


The craft of casting has its origins in the Copper Age and today represents a central element of the supply structure in Europe.


Foundries occupy a key position in automotive and mechanical engineering in particular. In casting, liquid metal is poured into the desired mould, where it can solidify. All industries benefit from such foundry products.

Minerals & fuels used in foundries

In foundries, for example, chrome ore sand and olive sand are used for moulding. Coke is also used as a fuel in this industrial sector. In addition, graphite is one of the most widely used valuable materials in casting.
