The paper presents the mechanism of solidifying mixtures on a soluble glass base with complex ethereos solidifiers, such as ethylene glycol acetates, triacetate with furfuryl alcohol and furfuryl oxypropyl cyclocarbonates. The castings comparative manufacturing technology based on cold-solidifying mixtures on soluble glass with these solidifiers is given. To experimentally determine and establish the regularities of increasing of the compressive strength of the mixture using ether hardeners and technological additives: ethylene glycol monoacetate (EGMA), ethylene glycol diacetate (EGDA), ethyl silicate (ES-40), ethylene glycol (EG), tetraethoxysilane (TEOS), triacetate with furfuryl alcohol (TAC with FA) and furfuryl oxypropyl cyclocarbonates are established. The basic physical and mechanical properties of mixtures with these additives, such as compressive strength, survivability, friability, gas permeability, and knocking-out ability were determined by standard methods according to the state standards (GOST). The most effective ethereos solidifiers, which allow obtaining high-quality mixtures on soluble glass with the highest strength properties, were determined.
