Fire & Frost - How to improve the jewelry wax industry


Mark Hattersley on Fire and Frost by Precizioned

         

HISTORY AND THE BACKGROUND OF YOUR COMPANY?

Precizioned wax, the US company behind Fire & Frost, was founded in 2012 with a desire to introduce new technology and concepts into the wax manufacturing industry. We are very lucky to have a management team who have spent decades working in the wax formulation,manufacturing and supplying industry for industrial applications. For example, Aerospace, medical and automotive casting. One of the key targets for us when we started the company was to apply the technology from these areas into the arts and creative sector for jewelry and sculpture casting.

HOW HAVE YOU ORGANIZED YOUR R&D AND YOUR INDUSTRIAL PLANT?

We have a fully equipped laboratory with state-of-theart testing equipment and an application room with the same equipment our customers are using to test all our waxes, ranging from Yasui jewelry injection machines to huge MPI industrial injection presses. But that is only half the story, we then work with clients to finally evaluate all of our products to ensure they are up to the job in the real world!

WHICH BENEFITS CAN YOU OFFER TO THE JEWELRY MARKET?

We believe that we bring a fresh approach to the market, with new ideas and new formulas and full technical support. Our waxes have been developed to give you better results, less waste and improvements throughout the manufacturing process.

WHAT ARE THE FEATURES OF YOUR WAXES COMPARED WITH THE STANDARD ONES PRESENT ON THE MARKET?

Our full range of waxes were developed to reduce the wastage seen through brittle failure; we believe that we also offer a significant improvement in surface finish and durability across the range.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE FOV BY LEGOR AS YOUR PARTNER IN THE ITALIAN MARKET?

FOV by Legor Group is for Precizioned a perfect strategic partnership, after all the right types of casting wax and alloy are two out of three vital components (the other is plaster). The synergy between the two companies who are both at the forefront of their field technically means that we are able to offer the customer a complete solution with only the very best materials and backing. One of the key benefits that we offer to all our customers is full technical support, whether that is over the phone, email, skype or even on-site visits, if required, anywhere in the world. Legor is the only company in this field who we believe shares this vital partnership with the customer to the extent that we do.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN FOV AND FIRE & FROST?

Our target is to improve the manufacturing process for all of our customers, and move our wax into sectors that we have yet to explore fully.
