The wax is melted at a temperature of 70°C and poured into an open mold. The professional caster will do so under pressure or vacuum to prevent air bubbles. The wax model is used in the lost wax method. This wax can also be added to other casting waxes such as casting wax red from our shop.
This wax has more shrinkage than a normall casting wax.
Avoid overheating (above 100°C) the wax at all times. If this is done, this can have a lasting effect on the properties of the wax.
