More recently, such molding has advanced in volume output by utilizing vapor curing techniques and mainly phenolic urethane coldbox (PUCB) binders cured with vaporized tertiary amines. The use of these vapor-cured binders gives even better rigidity and precision and allows more rapid mold production.
