High Performance, Industry Leading Binder
Developed to optimize ceramic shell slurries, Primcote binder is the investment casting industry’s leading colloidal silica based primary binder. Primcote binder was formulated to eliminate buckling, lifting and cracking of primary shell coats.

Primcote binder allows faster drying of primary coats with lower humidity and/or increased air circulation. Shell coats using Primcote binder cannot be over dried as shell coats using standard colloidal silica can.

Primcote binder contains a wetting agent, an antifoam agent and a color indicator to monitor shell dryness, as well as several other proprietary ingredients. Primcote binder is compatible with conventional refractory materials and shell room equipment.

Whether casting simple or complicated parts, Primcote binder is the industry’s primary binder of choice.
