CASTING METALS

      CASTING METALS

  
"Using the right alloy is essential in achieving satisfactory casting results."
Casting involves pouring liquid metal into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowing it to cool and solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process.

Notes About Casting Metals:

Warning: Melting lead and casting lead objects will expose you and others in the area to lead which is known to cause birth defects, other reproductive harm and cancer.  See instructions on "Reducing Exposure" supplied with product.

High tin content metals have excellent flow characteristics with low melting temperatures.

The addition of tin to lead lowers its melting point.

The lowest and most desirable melting point (356ƒ F.) is achieved with a 66% Tin & 34% lead alloy.

Metal should not be raised to over 670ƒ F, to prevent mold damage.

Each of our listed ingots will cast approximately 5 or 6, 54mm figures.
