About Machinable Wax

Machinable wax (also known as machining wax) is a mixture of castable wax and special plastic that makes this material strong enough to tolerate high temperatures yet retain very fine details. Machinable wax doesn't melt or deform during processing so it's possible to produce very small features. Most importantly, this material can be cast just like any other castable wax.

Description

Machinable wax is a mixture of wax and plastic. It's very easy to machine/mill and doesn't deform unlike regular castable wax. It burns out completely, making it ideal for lost wax casting, investment casting and prototyping, and is commonly used in the aerospace industry, healthcare, jewelry, and many more.

Common Uses

  • Prototyping
  • Molding
  • Dental CAD/CAM
  • Jewelry manufacturing
  • Precision Lost Wax Casting

Advantages

  • Reliability
  • Hardness
  • Recyclable
  • Superior surface finish
  • Can be carved (most types)

Disadvantages

  • Difficult to repair
  • Limitations on the shape
  • High burnout temperature
