This paper presents the application of mineral additives, such as expanded perlite, expanded vermiculite and microspheres in items used in founding. Mixed with paper pulp and aluminosilicate resin as a binder, these additives are the base of a mixture patented by the authors, which can be used in the production of pipe shapes and connectors with a circular cross-section in casting systems in the founding industry. These mixtures were subjected to TG thermal degradation during which a quantitative analysis of the emitted fumes was carried out. The analysis did not detect any other compounds other than those formed by the combustion of cellulose materials, which indicated that no chemical reaction took place between the applied additives and cellulose at high temperatures.
