Hi Kelly,

Coleman Engineering & Metals
Corp. is a scrap processor who
specializes in brass and bronze
refinery items such as slags,
skimmings, grindings, etc. Our
warehouse is at 323 S. Cesar
Chavez Blvd., Houston, TX 77011.
The office phone is 281-328-6329.
We pay competative prices for all
foundry materials. If we can

art world or the foundry industry,

Thanks,

Richard T. Coleman Jr., P.E.
President

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!
