In specific, Andrea Nardello and Giorgia Fava will introduce the new COLOUR-CHANGING COATING. Facing the increasing request of high-quality castings and the increasing need of foundries to have complete control on the drying of the surface, expecially when they apply water based coating, F.lli Mazzon's R&D has developed a new serie of coating on zircon basis and water. These new coatings change their colour once they are dried and permit the technicians and operators to check the drying process of the mould/core. In this way specific defects due to high humidity of the support are reduced.
