ALPCAST is an alpaca designed for lost-wax casting in closed and open systems. It is particularly suitable for stone-in-place casting.
The color of the products made using ALPCAST shows an off-white color grade (Yellow index: 25.8).
ALPCAST has a low level of deoxidizers, this makes it suitable for casting in closed and open systems.
ALPCAST offers excellent fluidity in casting, the as-cast tree is clean from oxide scales.
Due to the nickel content in the formula, and to the absence of precious elements in the alloy, it is not possible to guarantee the respect of UNI EN 1811:2011 standard on nickel release when testing items made with alpaca alloys.
The alloy is not suitable for age-hardening.
