pattern waxes

experience.performance. 'batch-to-batch consistency' for high quality patterns, time after time

Non-filled pattern waxes

Our pattern waxes are carefully designed and highly controlled to deliver consistent thermal, mechanical and rheological performance while ensuring low ash residues on burnout and excellent dewax characteristics.

Filled pattern waxes

We have a broad and innovative range of filler technologies to offer tighter dimensional control, less cavitation and faster cycle times.  All while ensuring reliable dewax characteristics.

Reclaimed pattern waxes

With our high-tech reclaiming facilities, we are able to carefully control the properties of recycled waxes to provide cost effective pattern waxes while maintaining consistent performance and price stability.

high performance pattern waxes

Paramelt has numerous filled pattern wax options each designed to maximize key properties for a range of applications. Utilizing multiple fillers such as terephalic acid (TA), cross-linked polystyrene (XLPS), bisphenol-A (BPA) and our new Organic Filler, our filled pattern waxes are designed to work in liquid, paste and even billet injection processes. Filled pattern waxes can be used in nearly every application and are especially critical for their advantages in producing large, complex and ceramic-cored castings.

Some of the key advantages of using filled pattern waxes are:

  • superior dimensional control
  • minimal shrinkage and cavitation
  • fast injection cycles
  • low thermal expansion
  • elimination of chills

Paramelt has a wide selection of non-filled pattern waxes for nearly every application. The latest non-filled pattern waxes have been developed to mimic filled wax performance in many applications.

Non-filled waxes are especially useful in situations that:

  • require the highest injected pattern surface quality
  • where the injection equipment available lacks proper mixing capability
  • when the injection pressure available is very low
  • situations where reclamation service is problematic due to geography or very low consumption

Paramelt’s reclaim and system pattern waxes offer significant input cost advantages to the foundry. Using our Tech-Clean™ process to scrub recycled wax of metallic residue along with our state-of-the-art filtration system, the wax can be used similar to virgin pattern wax.

The experience Paramelt has in the reconstitution of waxes over the last 30 years, means we can provide a near virgin wax performance with our high quality system waxes. We have the ability to make virtually any pattern wax as a system wax by working with the individual foundry to utilize their scrap wax as a component of the system wax.

We use the same high-quality raw materials as our virgin pattern waxes to reconstitute the reclaimed wax to the highly repeatable performance needed in a pattern wax. Our line of reclaim pattern waxes are designed for foundries that have extremely cost sensitive finished products and where tolerances do not have to be quite as tight as with virgin waxes.

The reclaim and system pattern waxes have advantages where:

  • material costs are more critical
  • reducing disposal costs at the foundry is important
  • disposal of spent wax is not an option
  • companies want to reduce their environmental impact
