A tin-rich pewter containing lead. Widely used in both model casting and jewellery trades. High fluidity and low casting temperatures make this alloy specially suited for highly detailed reproductions.
Supplied in small blocks for easy melting in flat bottom ladles. Pour at the lowest temperature consistent with filling the mould satisfactorily. Always dust the mould with talc before casting and pour metal in one fluent action without a break. Allow sufficient time for metal to set before removing from the mould. Beware even the mould can become very hot. Do not attempt to water cool, and do not pour hot metal into damp or wet moulds.
Pouring temperature 230°C - 280°C approx.
