ENVIRONMENTAL EFFORTS

image56

Buddy Bar Casting uses  a  thermal  sand reclamation system, which allows  it to completely reclaim and recycle chemically bonded mold sand, as well as used core sands. The dry sand molding process has been a mainstay of the business since its inception and allows for simple molding of increasingly large and complex castings. The reclamation system virtually eliminates the need to purchase new sand and also eliminates the costly process of hauling used sand to landfills. 

FINISHING DEPT. CAPABILITIES
