Tech Tip: Why Is My Wax Pattern Brittle?
Raw materials for creating high-quality injection waxes are carefully selected to provide an ideal balance of properties. Among the most desirable properties an injection wax can have are flexibility and an easy release from the mold.
Each time an injection wax is melted, cooled, and melted again, raw materials are consumed and these properties diminish.
If your patterns are brittle or breaking during the demolding process, or if you are having trouble releasing them from the mold at all, it may be time for fresh wax!
