Abstract
River Benue Foundry sand prepared using clay materials were found lacking in certain properties like: dry compression strength, shatter index and permeability. Investigations were conducted using Guinea-corn, Cassava and Maize as binders to improve the properties of this sand. The results showed that Cassava and Guinea-corn were more effective when added in liquid starch form as they improve the foundry properties of the sand.
