Cast finishing

All castings are bead blasted to ensure you receive the highest quality finish. We also offer at no charge an extra chemical stripping service.

Moulds

We have developed our own specialized mould cutting techniques and offer an urgent service when required at no extra cost. We have several moulding materials available to allow for the most suitable option and the best result from your patterns.

Alloy Density

Use this density table to help you calculate the weight of your castings from the weight of a wax, or to estimate the weight of a finished piece from the weight in a different alloy.

To convert from one alloy to another divide weight by the known alloy density and then multiply by wanted alloy density.

e.g: A ring weighing 3.0 grams is made of Sterling, and you want to know the weight of the same ring cast in 18ct Yellow.

3.0 ÷ 10.4 x 15.5

= 4.5 grams in 18ct Yellow
