Description

Get a bright white color, similar to silver, with this nickel alloy casting grain. 

Because it is professionally produced, you can count on consistent, repeatable quality and composition over time. 

Priced individually; each package contains 2 oz. of grain.

Applications 
Any casting method.

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 re-use nickel alloy castings, remove the copper oxides from the surface in a pickling solution or by mechanical means. We recommend a minimum 1:1 ratio of new grain to used nickel. All re-used nickel should be clean and free of debris. 

Composition 
The grain is composed of copper, nickel and zinc; this grain contains 4% lead.
