ICS-PREMIUM

ICS-PREMIUM is a high quality investment containing cristobalite and special additives.

This investment s recommended for use by jewelry casters producing intricate casting in gold and other nonferrous metals

ICS-PREMIUM is recommended for jewelry castings because of the following qualities:

  • Easy breakaway when water quenched - reducing the amount of time and effort required to clean the casting tree.

  • Smooth surface finish - wetting agents have been formulated into PREMIUM to reduce entrapped air and to insure that extremely fine details can be duplicated.

  • Low rise under vacuum - special additives have been formulated into PREMIUM,so that investment slurry does not boil out of the mixing bowl when it is vacuumed.
  • Quality and consistency - every batch of ICS-PREMIUM is checked under controlled conditions for chemical and physical properties, and as a final test, sample batches of PREMIUM are cast under production conditions to ensure quality and consistency before shipping.
