Sand Castings Sand casting is the process of using sand as the molding material when producing metal castings. Products that are produced by sand casting include, metal tools, plumbing parts, and car parts. Over 70% of all metal castings are produced by sand casting. The process of sand casting is very economical and ideal for many purposes. For example, this metal casting is a refractory material that can withstand high temperatures. It is suitable for molding since the sand is usually mixed with clay or another bonding agent, and is moistened with water for strength and plasticity. This mixture is then held in a flask, which is a system of mold boxes or frames. Placing a pattern within the sand creates a mold that can then be carved in a grating system. Once the pattern is removed, the cavity is filled with molten metal. The sand mold can be broken once the metal cools and then new casting is removed.

Sand casting has multiple benefits including durability, density, and low cost. The equipment used is cheap and simple to use, meaning anyone can process. Complex shapes and sizes are not an issue either and the materials can be used many times.
