Utility and Patching Waxes were compounded by Paramelt for repairing wax patterns in both precision investment casting and sculpture foundries.
Standard Red Utility Wax is used for most utility and patching applications. It can be applied at ambient room temperature or when slightly warmed. Availability by the pound or in slabs or in 8″ x 12″ sheets (203.2mm x 304.8mm). Please specify either 1/8″ (3.1mm), 3/16″ (4.7mm) or ¼” (6.3mm) thickness.
Extra Soft Utility Wax is ideal for patching, filleting and smoothing wax parts at room temperature. Available in red or white sticks 12″ long (304.8mm). Packaged in 1 lb. (0.45kg) boxes. Please specify colour when ordering.
Patching Waxes differ from Utility Waxes primarily in that they are considerably softer. They are especially well suited for repairing thin sections or defects such as pin holes and flowlines.
Red Patch-Eze™ is a soft, past-like wax used for filling small imperfections in patterns. Easily applied at ambient room temperatures by hand or spatula.
Green Patch-Eze™ is a slightly harder version of Red Patch-Eze typically used for filling larger imperfections. Clean burn-out is assured with no ash residue. Both Red and Green Patch-Eze are available in 1 quart (0.9 litres) and 1 gallon (3.7 liters) cans.
