Numbers of casts can be discussed with us.

To achieve a particular look, the resin can be filled or unfilled. For more information on fillers, please
visit the fillers page.

Resin

Resin castings make it possible to put intricate detail on a complex component. This level of detail is retained right through the production run. Polyester – most commonly used; Polyurethane – gives strength to intricate parts, flexible and low shrinkage; Epoxy – provides strength and low shrinkage.

White Metal

White metal is suitable for parts that are fragile as it provides strength to small, thin and intricate parts. We use lead-free pewter alloy.

Cold Cast Bronze

Cold cast bronze is suitable if a bronze finish is required or if weight is desired on an object, however it is a more expensive filler.

Plaster of Paris

Plaster of Paris may be used where the piece is less complex.

Rotational Casting

Using one of our rotational casting machines we can produce high definition, hollow/light-weight castings. Our machines are capable of processing moulds up to forty-eight inches in height by thirty-six inches in diameter. If weight is a consideration, then this is one method of reducing the weight of your castings.
