Our moulding starch “Special” [Formpuder "Spezial"] is used in foundries. It is micronized mineral material that is water-repellent on account of its hydrophobic properties, thus enabling the easy separation of the two moulding halves after casting.
Lycopodium substitute [Lykopodiumersatz] (of mineral origin) can be used in the same way as the moulding starch “Special” [Formpuder "Spezial"]. In addition, Lycopodium substitute [Lykopodiumersatz] does not only float on water, but also adheres to vertical surfaces, due to a modified production process. This product is distinguished by an enhanced range of uses e. g. in sample production.
