Materials

The casting technique allows the use of a wide range of different materials. The lost wax technique basically allows the use of all castable alloys.

The following list of the most common materials is not intended to be exhaustive. We will gladly consider your special wishes. Please inform us about the materials or special alloys you would like to use. Explain to us the application or the component's intended use. Many years of experience provide us with the necessary know-how to assist you in choosing the most suitable material.
