ALL FOUNDRY COATINGS
SAND MOULD, CORE, DIE AND INGOT COATINGS

Sand Moulding: The Cleancast Range

Gravity Die Casting: The Dytek Range

Coatings are an essential component when making castings. John Winter manufactures a range of Isopropanol and water based coatings for sand cores and moulds, coatings for die casting processes and also for ingot casting machines.

Cleancast is a newly developed and proven range of coatings for sand moulds and cores and Dytek is a very successful range of gravity die coatings.
