We only use this to either add color to the model or to add strength.
Brookfield also makes a lot of patterns that are used for lost wax
processing and typically just clean up the down facing surfaces and the
foundries run them as is.

Good morning Mr Jacobs

Thanks for the information, I am most grateful. IŽll see if I can find
similar stuff over here.

You wouldnŽt know if a coating like this makes any difference when
casting from an Actua pattern?
We do a lot of lost wax casting from Actua. Works great if whenever it
is possible to get around the problem with rough downfacing surfaces.
