Numbers of casts can be discussed with us.
We cast in:
To achieve a particular look, the resin can be filled or unfilled. For more information on fillers, please

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 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 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 may be used where the piece is less complex.
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.
