Description

Get professional, repeatable results with this versatile 99.9% pure fine silver round shot casting grain.

Our casting team has honed special processes to keep our silver casting grain oxygen-free. You enjoy consistent quality and composition over time, with a bright-white, lustrous finished metal.

Sold by troy ounces (ozt.).

Applications
Any casting method and making ingots.

Casting and Cleaning
In general, your casting temperature should be 100˚F (37.7˚C) above the liquidus point (somewhat hotter if the castings are intricate). Use a small amount of high-quality flux when melting with an open flame. We recommend Matt’s Casting Flux™. For further cleaning, mechanical means are recommended.

Re-Using
If you plan to reuse fine silver castings, remove the oxides from the surface in a pickling solution and then tumble with burnishing compound to remove any remaining debris. We recommend a minimum 1:1 ratio of new grain to used silver.

Composition
Our fine silver is electrolytically produced in our state-of-the-art facility. The purity of the silver is a nominal 99.99%+ fine.
