For example, the database shows that calcium bentonite is the predominant binder used when pouring aluminum and copper-base alloys. However, copper-base casting facilities also use a quantity of sodium bentonite or bentonite with processed carbon to increase dry and hot compression strength because of the higher pouring temperatures.
