What are Green Sand Castings? - Willman Industries

Green Sand Castings are castings made using wet sand or “green sand” molds. The sand is not green in color nor do the molds use “greensand,” a greenish color sandstone. Instead the sand is called “green” because it has moisture in it (like green wood) before the sand dries out when molten metal is poured in the mold.
