SHELLSPEN SUSPENSION SYSTEM
is a non-settling ceramic shell
slurry when mixed with base supplies.
It is used for coating wax sculpture
and pattern forms of every size in
the Lost-Wax Ceramic Shell Bronze
Casting process. Because it is
non-settling, there is absolutely
no need to keep timed mechanical
mixers running continuously with
our SHELLSPEN SUSPENSION SYSTEM!
This list is in no particular order and I have not necessarily even used some of the bronze casting foundries listed here. This information is only intended as a guide to let you know what's out there. I appreciate any comments regarding any of these companies. Thank you for visiting my site.|
